Message from the President
Dr. Dave Bonebreak
It is with honor that I serve you as President of the Maryland State Society of Orthodontists.I am looking forward to working with the very talented officers that comprise the Board of Directors and would like to extend sincere thanks to our immediate past president, Dr.Lara Minahan, for her ongoing commitment to the organization and for leaving it in such an excellent position with forward momentum.

This is an extremely exciting time for the profession of orthodontics. Both we and our patients benefit from the impact of updated and new technologies such as three dimensional scanning, imaging and printing. It is my goal and the goal of the board to provide meaningful continuing education opportunities for the organization. We will strive to always be available to you to solve any constituency concerns. We encourage you to communicate to us your suggestions to improve the performance of the MSSO and its relevance to your practice.
