ADAA Executive Director Lawrence H. Sepin was inducted as an honorary Fellow of the Academy of Dentistry International (ADI) during a ceremony held in Orlando, FL, in conjunction with the ADA Annual Conference. The mission of the Academy is as follows: "The Academy of Dentistry International is the international honor society for dentists dedicated to sharing knowledge in order to serve dental health needs and to improve the quality of life of people throughout the world. Through the development of fellowship and understanding, the Academy endeavors to create opportunities for service in order to assist in the establishment of a world at peace."

With a belief in world understanding through education, the ADI was formed in 1974 and is governed by a Board of Regents. Mr. Sepin was honored by ADI because of his leadership role with the American Dental Assistants Association. He is pictured below, left, with Donald T. Brown, DDS, MS, ADI President
