Darrell Igelmund ’69 writes, "Sold my electronic test equipment company and patents (Byte Brothers,Inc. of Seattle) to Jewell Instruments/Triplett of Manchester, NH. The factory was relocated from Seattle to New Hampshire on August 31. A big thanks to the Santa Clara's engineering school for helping this once young guy from New York get off to a good start and standing by me after I received an "F" in second year physics (a victim of too much fun!)"

He has been a CDA member for 33 years and succeeds past president, James D. Stephens, DDS.

During his recent installation speech at CDA's House of Delegates meeting, Dr. Weber emphasized the importance of CDA continually looking for ways to support members and the patients they serve in the profession's changing landscape, according to the association.
 
"Current trends in dentistry, including shrinking dental insurance benefits, pressures to reduce costs, and increasing costs of dental education, make it important for CDA to understand members' needs and develop strategies to help them succeed and best care for patients," Dr. Weber said. "Our members' success is critical for our organization to continue as the leaders in advocating for Californians' oral health."
 
Dr. Weber, past president of the Santa Clara County Dental Society, has served on the board of Tthe Dentists Insurance Company, CDA's Policy Development Council, and the Dental Benefits Task Force.

“Aven represents the very best of the Jesuit ideal of a person for others. He is smart, generous and committed to justice for the human and natural world. I know I speak for many at Santa Clara when I say I could not be happier for a talented young man,” said David DeCosse, director of the Campus Ethics program at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics.
