Third Generation Alpha Omegan Takes Helm of Florida Dental Association

EgganatzMichael Eggnatz, of Weston, Florida, was installed as President of the Florida Dental Association on Fri., June 23, 2017. Most of his entire family was there for this momentous occasion. His two brothers and three sisters and their families and friends were there to lend their support and certainly fill the room. Of course, his mother Marian and his wife Marian (yes, same name) and their daughter Kristina and son David were all there for the festivities. A Florida AO Shabbat Hospitality was held in honor of Michael’s installation.     

Michael is a third generation Alpha Omegan (Miami Chapter, University of Maryland Chapter and International). His grandfather Meyer (Mike) Eggnatz was from Baltimore and relocated to Miami to practice orthodontics. He was the International President of Alpha Omega in 1942. Michael’s dad, Lee was a pediatric dentist, also in the Miami area. All three of the Eggnatz’s were educated at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, Meyer Eggnatz, 1928, Lee Eggnatz 1958, and Michael Eggnatz, 1988.

All Alpha Omegans are certainly proud of Michael and we wish him a most successful year of many accomplishments!
