Auerbach to head Dental Society

Michael Auerbach has been named executive director of the New Hampshire Dental Society following the retirement in March of the organization’s longtime top executive, Jim Williamson.

Auerbach, chief of staff for the Massachusetts House of Representatives until 2006, also is former deputy director of the Massachusetts Lodging Association since then.

Williamson became the society’s executive director in 2002 and was recognized by the American Dental Association in 2014 for his service to organized dentistry with an honorary membership.
