Happy New Year's Message - International President Wendy Spektor

L'shana Tova-Happy New Year!

It is that time of year when the Jewish people have the opportunity to look back and evaluate our year and then look forward -making changes as we adjust our goals, priorities and lifestyle.

It has been an amazing year-Filled with friendship, involvement, personal growth as well as challenges.  I am so grateful to have this opportunity and to thank you all for electing me as your Alpha Omega International President.  We have had a year filled with retrospection, reevaluation and growth.

AO is alive and well and as vibrant and valid as 110 years ago. AO Dental Fraternity represents all the good -we are greater than the sum of our parts. 

From our local mentorship and leadership training of our students to the HSC Holocaust Survivor Program, from the dental missions in Guatemala and Uganda to the dental schools in Israel, from the Tree of Peace in Boston to the Tree of Peace in Strasbourg, AO is everywhere in the dental world. 

While we have challenges we say "Yihyeh Tov."  It will be good.  We believe that it will be better because obstacles can be opportunities.

Our strength is in our membership.  What transforms, motivates and recharges us is critical to the way we expand our membership - we want to return those who are losing their energy, connect to those that are active and stay committed to the values of AO-

We have much to be proud of and need to spread the word. With each of you helping, we can share our story.  Each of us must tell the AO story.  If you don't know it, learn it and we can help with that .  If you know it, pass it on.  Connect with AO!  Go to .

Come to convention in December 27th -January 1st in San Francisco and bring your friends!  You don't need to be a dentist!  We have associate memberships so take advantage of our great room rates of 159.00 a room!  We have a tour to Napa, and amazing CE by Dr. Howard Farran with his program - the One Day MBA for Dentists.   

Get active, reach out and connect! 

L'shana Tova-G'mar Tov!

May this new year bring us all renewed spirit, health, blessings and happiness.

Wendy Spektor
2016 International President

Holocaust Survivors Oral Health Program




The Alpha Omega-Henry Schein Cares Holocaust Survivors Oral Health Program is a public-private partnership established to answer the White House's call to action to help vulnerable survivors age with dignity and support. By increasing Holocaust survivors access to oral   care, the program seeks to significantly enhance their overall quality of life.

The program launched in January 2015 in nine North American cities: Boston, Chicago, Detroit, New York City and the NY/NJ metro area, Philadelphia, Seattle, Montreal and Toronto. Atlanta, Columbus and Calgary were then added to the list. In 2016, the program further expanded to include: Dallas, Los Angeles and Winnipeg. Additional expansion is anticipated in 2017.

Alpha Omega is thankful to partner with Henry Schein and the Team Schein members, the Association of Jewish Family & Children's Agencies, Town & Country Dental Studios and Bedford Healthcare Solutions.

AO is also grateful for the program's philanthropic partners providing the generous financial support needed to administer the program.
