Ardita Dalipi, MD
Dr. Dalipi was one of the first supporters and members of our society. She held important leadership positions in the board and steering committee for three consecutive terms and was a strong voice in strengthening the structure of our organization.
Born on March 27th, 1973 in Kosovo, Dr. Dalipi received her Doctor of Dentistry degree at the University of Prishtina, College of Dentistry in Kosovo in 1998. In 2005 Dr. Dalipi graduated from the International Dentist Program at the University of Illinois in Chicago, College of Dentistry where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. She sustained herself in the highest standards of practicing dentistry in the USA and became a role model for the younger generations. Her contributions to AAMS and its community came from whichever way she could. Whether it was monetary, time, guidance, probono service and more, Dr. Dalipi was always ready and willing to help.
Dr. Dalipi was an exemplary citizen of her newly adopted country and a lifelong patriotic provider of her homeland, Kosovo, and Albanian territories in the Balkan peninsula.
Dr. Ardita was a truly exceptional person and an adoring mother to her 3 children. She will be dearly missed. We send out deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.
