As we continue to celebrate our 75th Anniversary, we will be highlighting some of the leaders who have helped make ACPA so successful. This month we are highlighting Howard Aduss.
Name: Howard Aduss
Location: Chicago, IL 60610
Current Title: Professor of Orthodontics, The Craniofacial Center, Department of Surgery, University of Illinois College of Medicine
Service with ACPA:
- 1967 - Treasurer ACPA
- 1969 - ’72 Executive Council

Three words I use to describe ACPA: Important, necessary, educational
What I gained from ACPA: I learned to “listen and learn”. As a result, I became a better clinician in my own specialty.
Over the next 75 years, I wish: Continue to stress inter-disciplinary treatment.
My advice for current ACPA leadership: Listen and learn from your associates.
I felt like I was involved with ACPA “forever”. It was part of my professional life. What I always admired was “how smart and dedicated my colleagues were”.#75thAnniversary
