Illinois Section Inducts Eighteen New Fellows

The Illinois Section of the Pierre Fauchard Academy returned to a live new fellow induction ceremony on Thursday Feb. 24, 2022. The grand event was held in the ballroom of Maggiano’s Little Italy in downtown Chicago, where eighteen very impressive colleagues were welcomed as new fellows. Illinois has had the distinction of welcoming forty-eight new fellows over the last three years!

Our Section was honored to have a very distinguished guest list, not only from PFA, but from the American College of Dentists as well. As proof that the Chicago Dental Society holds the Midwinter Meeting during the winter, travel delays were in the mix. However, this did not stop the camaraderie and lively reception highlighted by the band, Burnt Biscuits.

Following the impressive attendance of the 2021 virtual ceremony, where nine PFA Officers and Trustees participated, the 2022 live event was even more remarkable, where we had reservations for ten PFA and ACD dignitaries from outside the Section!
