Col. William Bachand assumed command of the Europe Regional Dental Command in a ceremony Thursday on Nachrichten Kaserne in Heidelberg, Germany.

Bachand traded commands with Col. Randall Ball, who departed Germany earlier this summer to take command from Bachand of the Pacific Regional Dental Command in Fort Shafter, Hawaii.

Col. Theresa Gonzalez, commander of the Bavaria Dental Activity, had been acting as interim commander since Ball departed.
