3. “In my prior positions as Vice President of Dentist's Advantage, and a past president of the AGD Foundation, I have had the privilege of meeting, working and becoming friends with many AGD members, leaders and staff.  I count Mohamed Harunani as one of my friends.  While it seems that I have known Mohamed forever, in reality it has been about 12 years.  In that time I have known him to be a true gentleman. In business dealings between the AGD and Dentist's Advantage, Mohamed has consistently been reasonable and fair; always looking for the "win-win."   From my perspective, his commitment to the Academy is unparalleled.  Regardless of the meeting or venue, I found that I would always "run into" Mohamed!  The Academy has been well served with Mohamed as its treasurer; and I believe it's future will be secure as he moves up through the leadership ranks!"

20. "Dr. Mohamed Harunani has been my mentor and close friend for the last 30+ years.  When I was 17 years old, and unsure of the path to take for my future professional life, he invited me to shadow him in his office, to see if the path of dentistry would be the right one for me.  I am so immensely happy that he did, because now (20 years later) I am the new owner of my own private dental office.  Dr. Harunani has played an extremely significant role in helping to shape the dentist that I have become.  He inspires me to be a better clinician, and he continually teaches me to think outside the box to come to an even greater solution.  He is the type of person who encourages everyone around him to strive to be his or her best.  As a result of his enthusiastic energy and guidance, one cannot help but to perform at levels previously unimagined. Not only has this helped me in my professional career, but also in my personal and private life as well.    He genuinely cares for people and wants to see success in every aspect of life.  It is these qualities of enthusiasm, empathy, and kindness that I strive to embody as well.  I have a new associate and with my memories of Dr. Harunani's guidance, I continually strive to provide the same level of mentorship to my associate as he had shown to me.  Dr. Harunani has been an inspiration to me, both professionally, and personally, and I know that will never change for the many years ahead."

He continues to be very much involved in areas of importance to Dentistry and the public, not the least of which is his involvement with Dental Standards, through the Standards Committee on Dental Informatics (SCDI) where he chairs a work group and is the AGD designated voting representative to the SCDI. Few volunteers work harder than Dr. Harunani. In my view, he's a keeper!"

I worked with Dr. Harunani for 6 years at his dental practice, and another 15 years as the Exec. Sec. for ILAGD.

I am not sure of any person that would take the time out of his day, weekly, to mentor a new and developing dentist with such encouragement and dedication as Dr. Harunani. Even today, I think of him and do remember things he would say, “even if it’s a small occlusal filling, make it your best and make it nice for your patient.” He is a caring, kind, compassionate man who is dedicated to excellence in the field of dentistry. He is one of the most kind and giving people that I have met along my path of life. I am very lucky to have had him as my mentor along the way."

Through that work, I came to know and respect Dr. Harunani’s skills and work processes.  Through those interactions, I also came to respect Mohamed’s ethics and commitments to all dental industry stakeholders.

The AGD is at a unique time right now, with changes in Dentistry happening from all over.  I can't think of a more knowledgeable and more prepared person to help guide us through these uncertain times.  We need someone who can look at things from all points of view. Mohamed is the ultimate down to earth guy who wants to know what you think, he talks to you; not at you."

Constituents cannot grow on their own without leadership and nurturing from Executive Officers through some forms of assistance and guidance. Dr. Harunani’s blend of knowledge of the organization through years of service, and his compassionate and results-driven approach will contribute greatly to the success of AGD.

Ravishankar Sinha, DDS, RD Chair, RD Region 11, AGD.

Dr. Mohamed has helped myself and my staff immensely in all phases of dentistry. His knowledge of new materials and new techniques has saved us much time and money, but more has increased the confidence our patients have in us. For practice management Dr. Mohamed has brought real world change to my practice, and efficiency that I thought was unattainable.

56. "I have known Dr. Harunani since dental school at Northwestern University – his brother, Dawood, was in my dental school class.  We reconnected through Illinois AGD a number of years later after I was asked to serve on the Board. 

Throughout all my years on the Board, which included my ascension through the Executive Committee to IL AGD President (2016-17), I have found Dr. Harunani to have worked tirelessly for AGD and it’s constituency.  He has always been, and remains, generous with his time and expertise for Illinois AGD, especially with regard to his institutional memory, and his organizational and business skills.  

I have always found Dr. Harunani to be forward thinking and to have a broad perspective on what he feels is important to the General Dentist and where dentistry is headed in the future.

Because he sees dentistry from several perspectives,   I have found him to be diplomatic in giving his opinion, yet passionate in what he feels is important from both a budgetary standpoint for AGD and the best way to protect and promote the needs of the general dental practitioner.  I have witnessed his efforts with regard to his very hard work to make strong connections with our local, state, and national representatives in government.

On a personal level, I have found Dr. Harunani to always be kind, sympathetic, and very proud of his exceptional family.  

It is for these reasons that I believe that Dr. Harunani will be an excellent Vice President.

Dr. Susan Mayer, ILAGD, Past President.


57. "Mohamed Harunani is one of the most passionate supporters of the AGD. He has generously and effectively supported the AGD well for many years."

63. "As a member of the ADA's Standards Committee on Dental Informatics (SCDI), and Chair of its Subcommittee on Information Exchange (SIE), I have known and worked with Dr. Harunani for close to ten years.  He is one of the best examples I have ever worked with, of a "servant leader" who puts the needs of those he leads over his own self-interest. A highly intelligent and conscientious "doer", there is no project too small or too large for Dr. Harunani to take on and pursue to its conclusion. He chairs several Working Groups that deal with very detailed and technical issues under the umbrella of SIE. His work and leadership in those Working Groups has been exemplary. I highly recommend him as a candidate for AGD Vice-President."

Jonathan B. Knapp DMD, Bethel CT, Chair of SCDI Subcommittee on Information Exchange.
