Hello, Dr. Ward:
 Just a quick note to thank you for your great presentation last Friday to the members of the Philadelphia County Dental Society. We received six written evaluations. All indicated that the program fulfilled a specific need, was well planned and was relevant to today’s dental practice. Positive verbal feedback included comments such as: “excellent presentation; fine speaker;” “very good overview about new materials and emerging concepts;” “great information on the advantage of such products as MI Paste;” “discussion about bonding – and the review of benefits and differences between pure GI and resin modified GI – was helpful.”
