Chairmans Message

2019 Star of the South Dental Meeting

“Reflections of Perfection”

Chairman’s Message


On behalf of the Greater Houston Dental Society, it is my pleasure to welcome the entire dental team to the 48th annual Star of the South Dental Meeting.  This meeting has been a part of my dental career from the beginning. Like many GHDS members, I realized early on that this is a great member benefit. I started by just attending this meeting, soon I began volunteering in many different capacities and now I am the Chairman of this spectacular dental meeting.

The meeting has evolved over the years in part due to the valued input of our attendees.  We listened and as a result the meeting format is now on Thursday and Friday.  Of course, every year we strive to bring the best speakers, many you have recommended.  We have spent the past year planning another exceptional meeting providing quality continuing education to reenergize the entire dental team. We have courses for all aspects of dentistry including courses to meet required Texas State Dental Board requirements for sleep apnea and opioid prescribing.

The exhibit hall will be full of vendors showing the latest technology, their best products and equipment. Grab a bag of popcorn from the popcorn station and head to the Relaxation Station for a relaxing shoulder massage. The ever popular Exhibit Hall Happy Hour with also return for your enjoyment.  The Thursday night Mix and Mingle will return. It will be open to all attendees and exhibitors.  Come unwind, enjoy some food and beverages, visit the photo booth for a few fun photos with friends and socialize while listening to some cool jazz.

Join us at the Star of the South, February 7th and 8th 2019 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. This is a great event to learn something new, network with your colleagues and friends as well as make new ones.
