6th National Conference


Boston, MA - September 24, 2008                                         Published by


The Russian-American Dental Association (RADA) and the Russian-American Medical Association (RAMA) announce their 6th Annual Joint National Convention for dental and medical professionals. Held on October 4th and 5th at the Harbor Hyatt in Boston, MA, the Conference is now known as the preeminent conference for networking and the discussion of critical issues in the dental and medical practices.

RADA and RAMA organized this Convention after recognizing that the treatment of an individual requires consideration of all aspects of patient healthcare. The Convention will allow professionals from both fields to collaborate and contribute viewpoints regarding the medical treatment of various diseases, as well as discuss the latest preventative measures. “It is crucial that we cover these issues together: the Conference will provide a chance for a roundtable multidisciplinary discussion. In addition, we will talk about the latest developments in medical and dental science as well as RADA’s and RAMA’s humanitarian projects,” asserts Rada Sumareva, DDS, RADA President.

RADA is a nonprofit professional society of Russian-speaking dentists and dental professionals; RAMA is nonprofit organization of Russian-American physicians. The Convention is a unique conference providing both dental and medical professionals the chance to gather under one roof and exchange ideas. The event will enable Russian-speaking dental and medical professionals the chance to address problems in both industries, opportunities for humanitarian work, the link between systemic disease and oral health, and culturally-sensitive issues specific to Russian-speaking American doctors from various former Soviet Union Republics.

Additionally, the Conference will include nationally-known speakers in the dental and medical fields who will present the latest cutting-edge research and other topics across both industries. The Conference will also provide incredible networking opportunities—for those already working in the dental or medical fields—and those hoping to enter one of these industries.

The Conference exemplifies RADA’s mission. The organization began in 1999 as a meeting of seven dental practitioners who believed in forming an ethnic-focused organization which would aid other practitioners and impact the community. RADA was officially launched in June 2002. Today, its members come from the US, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Germany, Canada, Israel, Georgia, Belarus and other countries.

Russian American Dental Association (RADA), is a national nonprofit organization with 501c (3) charity status. RADA is devoted to humanitarian and community work, as well as assisting dental professionals in their career goals, and providing education and research in the dental field. RADA sponsors and organizes charity events, holds medical professional conferences, offers Continuing Education courses and advises practitioners and organizations on the medical profession.

Russian-American Medical Association (RAMA), was founded and incorporated in 2002.
