Cesar Sabates, D.D.S., who last month became the 158th president of the ADA, said his priorities include improving diversity and inclusivity within the Association and promoting the benefits of membership, according to a report in Dr. Bicuspid. The ADA already offers the "Amplifying Voices" series that gives members a discussion forum for issues such as equality, diversity and women's empowerment. "We need to model these types of programs and scale them bigger," said Dr. Sabates, the ADA's first Cuban-American president. "I'd also like to hear from our members and nonmembers and what they think we should be doing to be more inclusive." Dr. Sabates also noted that while expanding Medicare Part B to add dental benefits is no longer included in the Democrats' proposed federal spending legislation, the ADA will continue discussions with stakeholders on the next steps. "My hope is that we will work together to provide meaningful coverage to those seniors unable to visit the dentist because they cannot afford it," said Dr. Sabates, who maintains a private practice in Coral Gables, Fla.
