Dentist In Burke, VA, James Willis, Named President Of The Northern Virginia Dental Association

Burke, VA – On Sunday, September 17, 2017, James Willis, DDS was officially sworn in after having been appointed to two independent positions within the dental community of Virginia:

* Member of the Board of Directors for the Virginia Dental Association (VDA)

* President of the Northern Virginia Dental Association (NVDS)

Dr. Willis is dedicated to promoting excellent oral health and does everything he can to support patients and the dental community in his area. Since 2009 he has served on the NVDS Executive Committee, a body dedicated to promoting the quality of patient care while upholding the high ethical standards of service to which the dental community holds itself. He has served as chairman of the NVDS community outreach committee for eight years, where he and his subcommittee leaders organize programs to provide dental care to community members who may otherwise not be able to afford care.

Such programs include Mission of Mercy (MOM) events as well as promotion of the two Northern Virginia Dental Clinics which provided ongoing dental care to patients qualifying through social services. He has also served since 2009 as a member of the patient relations committee, helping to promote positive relationships between dentists and their patients.

Dr. Willis has also served on the panel of judges for the Virginia high school science fair where his bachelor and master degrees in electrical engineering have been a helpful background to allow both NVDS and VDA to recognize the very deserving scholars of our community. He has also served since 2009 as a member of the VDA House of Delegates, a body which uses political avenues to advocate for patient care and protection.

The VDA is the official non-profit organization that represents some 3,500 VDA member dentists throughout the Commonwealth. The VDA has a vision to continually improve the quality of dental education and treatment within Virginia and is organized into eight geographic components.

Currently, there are over 1,350 member dentists in NVDS. Dr. Willis is more than honored to have been invited to serve on the VDA Board of Directors and as NVDS President. He is looking forward to working hard to promote and enhance the oral health of everyone in our community.

Dr. Willis is thrilled that his peers within organized dentistry have selected him to serve them. It is with humility that he accepts these positions and the responsibilities that they bring.  He is grateful to the members of the dental profession who have placed their trust in him and he will wholeheartedly endeavor to meet their expectations.

Dr. Willis was born and raised in Maryland, received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland and his master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University in Electrical Engineering, and received his dental degree from Loma Linda University in California. He volunteers his dental expertise by donating treatment to those most in need, both locally and internationally. Dr. Willis owns a family dental practice in Burke, VA where he dedicates his efforts to his patients and their families.
