The team at Restorative and Implant Dentistry of Bayside is proud to announce that our board-certified prosthodontist, Sameet Sheth, DDS, is the next President of the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) New York Section!
The New York Section is the largest local chapter of the American College of Prosthodontists in the nation. During his one-year term as the President of the Board of Directors, Dr. Sheth will preside over board meetings, oversee the appointment and instruction of committees tasked with carrying out the group’s mission, and represent the section at the regional level as well as in a variety of public relations capacities. Dr. Sheth’s previous five years of service on the board have prepared him well for the duties and responsibilities he will assume in this new role.
The overarching goals for the ACP New York Section supports the ACP as a whole, in addition to advocating for prosthodontic education and growth for local specialists/students. To achieve these objectives, the ACP New York Section:
- Gives grants for research related to prosthodontic care
- Hosts table clinics and research presentations for New York state’s prosthodontic residents
- Works with local prosthodontists during National Prosthodontics Awareness Week (NPAW), which promotes the benefits of tooth replacements performed by a skilled prosthodontist
- Runs two scientific meetings during the year, held in the spring and fall, which feature top speakers in the field and educational opportunities
- Works to engage and retain members, while also recruiting new members
In accepting his new position as President, Dr. Sheth looks forward to continuing to advance the field of prosthodontics, inspiring students to pursue the specialty, and supporting the careers of fellow prosthodontists.
