Headed to San Fran for the ADA FDI World Dental Congress? Mark Wahlberg is too.

On Thursday, Oscar-nominated actor and producer Mark Wahlberg will serve as keynote speaker of the ADA FDI 2019 Opening Ceremony and General Session. The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation, which he founded in 2001, travels across the U.S. to create a dialogue around the dangers of opioid abuse.

“Wahlberg’s long-standing allegiance to philanthropic outreach and the Foundation’s efforts to address opioid abuse align with the work of ADA and dentists across the country. Join us during the Opening Ceremony and General Session to hear more about this important work and to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary global impact that ADA and FDI dentists make every day.”

Wahlberg, a committed philanthropist, works to improve the quality of life for inner-city youth through the Foundation, helping them to be successful and lead extraordinary lives.

Who else will inspire attendees?

Alison Levine, team captain of the first American Women’s Everest Expedition and author of the New York Times Bestseller, On the Edge: Leadership Lessons from Everest and Other Extreme Environments, will present Thursday at 1:30 p.m. and offer a small group session – a Fireside Chat at 3:30 p.m.


Her goal: to inspire attendees to reach new heights and discover how the principles that lead to success in the world of extreme adventure also apply to the everyday settings—in a dental practice and in life. Levine will share authentic parallels between the mountains and the uncontrollable events that you deal with every day. Set against the backdrop of her remarkable expeditions, she will provide a framework to help you scale the ‘big peaks’ you aspire to climb and offer unorthodox advice about how to take risk, improve teamwork and deal with changing environments.
