Mr. GOSAR. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Ms. Penny Gage for
her dedication and commitment to the Dental Industry. Ms. Gage has
served as a Tri-County Dental Society executive director for over 30
years. During this time membership expanded from 700 to 2000 members.
She was a strong promoter in building a relationship between the
society and the dental students within the two dental schools in the
program's area. Ms. Gage has been active in participating with the
American Association of Dental Editors and Journalist organization in
providing ideas and proof-reading the AADEJ's newsletters. She has also
served with the American Dental Association.
During her time with the Tri-County Dental Society she developed the ``Give Kids a Smile'' program as well as encouraged members to help provide free dental clinics. That program has led to another exceptional program, ``Give Adults a Smile'', which she also supports. Ms. Gage has developed a network of relationships throughout dentistry and has been essential to its promotion and progress in these areas. Actions such as hers have helped to make more smiles possible.
Mr. Speaker, it is with great pleasure that I recognize Ms. Penny Gage for her long time service to the Tri-County Dental Society and oral health promotion as a whole. Her achievements in expanding membership and programming helped to improve the lives of many and help everyone to smile more.
