Carrie Brown, D.M.D., practiced dentistry in Lexington, KY, for 38 years before retiring in 2012. But she hasn’t stepped away from her passion altogether. Dr. Brown has been installed as the 91st President of the
National Dental Association (NDA), which has 48 chapters in the United States, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean, representing 6,000 minority dentists. The NDA was formed in 1913 and is the largest association of its kind in the world.
Dr. Brown is ready to effect change. As President of the NDA, she has several priorities that stand out. The first is to recruit and retain more minority dental students, a purpose she has maintained throughout her career. Another priority is “make sure we all understand the Affordable Care Act and its
rollout year after year,” Dr. Brown says. “I want to make sure we stay informed about those changes.”
Dr. Brown is a graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry.
