BALTIMORE, Md., USA: The Middle Atlantic Society of Orthodontists (MASO) will host its annual session from Sept. 20 to 23 at the Hilton Baltimore on Baltimore’s inner harbor. The theme of the event is “Charting a Course for the Future.” Speakers include: Drs. David Sarver, Roger Levin, Neal Kravitz, Jeffrey Posnick, Normand Boucher, Jeff Behan and Chris Bentson.

MASO’s staff program will include Char Eash and Tina Byrne.

At this annual session, MASO will present its Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. David Paolini. Paolini graduated from La Salle College in Philadelphia and the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 1964. He received a three-year fellowship in orthodontics at the start of his sophomore year in dental school, which started him on the career path of this specialty. After completing dental school, Paolini married his wife, Caroline, and began his orthodontic training at Pitt. He received his certificate in orthodontics and his master’s in dentistry, and then entered military service, spending two years at Fort Benning, Ga.

In 1972, he established his first office in Gettysburg, Pa., and opened a satellite office in Waynesboro a year later. He retired in 2010. During his 38 years of practice, Paolini has served as president of both the Pennsylvania State and Middle Atlantic Society of Orthodontists. During his service on, and chairmanship of, the AAO’s Council on Insurance, he achieved the highlight of his AAO career when he was instrumental in establishing the current malpractice program. He served on the council for an additional five years. He has served two eight-year terms in the AAO House of Delegates and eight years on the Council on Orthodontic Practice.
