Adult Education Center. He obtained his National Dental Certification

He spent many of his early years on the mean streets of D.C. hustling
to survive by any means imaginable. Poverty was his family's best teacher.
He grew up in a one-parent home with six siblings. Dalani had to learn
early on how to make something out of nothing. Those survival and personal
management skills served him well in the future. At seventeen, he entered
the workforce as an apprentice in a dental laboratory. After one year
he was promoted to Manager. He used this opportunity to hire and train
other inner-city teens.
Dalani Aamon spent his first five years perfecting his technical and
management skills in order to one day operate his own dental facility.
In 1978 he was offered a position in a prestigious dental practice outside
of Washington, D.C. At age twenty-three he was considered one of the
best dental ceramist in the country. He spent the next five years managing
a five-person operation in this practice. In Febuary,1983 he decided
to open his own dental studio. He has successfully operated what is
now a family business for more than 25 years. He obtained his national
dental certification in 1980 from the West Palm Beach College. He has
taught dental materials and chair side procedures to many dentists in

After many satisfying, and busy years in the business world Dalani Aamon
was caught off guard by the sudden death of his older sister Noel. Barely
passed her fortieth birthday she took her own life. It was at that time
that it occurred to Dalani that he really didn't know his sister as
well as he could have. A couple of years later his older brother, Gary,
drank himself to death. This type of self-destructive behavior makes
it apparent that something went very wrong in their early childhood
development. Dalani also noticed that most of the people in his neighborhood
had addictions and other problems that were passed on from earlier generations.
Dalani made a personal vow to put more time and energy into finding
out why people of color suffer so much on this planet. He has studied
human behavior with the same zest that has made him one of the best
in his chosen health care field. He is determined to save the mind,
body, and soul of his people.
He has written and lectured about black family dysfunction and all of
the ills associated with it. His essays have had such a positive effect
that he decided to make it available to the masses. His book "I
Must Let My People Know" has won the best non-fiction book of the
