She was a founding member of the Boston District Dental Society and was elected vice president of the Massachusetts Dental Society at the state House of Delegates in June.

“I encourage younger dentists to actively participate in organized dentistry, because it’s the voice of our profession. Organized dentistry also provides young dentists with opportunities to connect with colleagues to share ideas and experiences, complete continuing-education requirements and volunteer in the community.”
Something People Don’t Know
Dr. Bailey carried the Olympic torch down historic Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia, before the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta. “Thankfully, I succeeded in my sole responsibility of keeping the flame burning until I passed it to the next runner. I have the torch that I carried on display in my living room, and there are still Olympic ashes on the top.”
