Meet Dr. Carrie York, Chair of the Committee on PNDC
Dr. York is a general dentist from Mercer Island, WA. When she's not practicing dentistry, she leads a group of five other WSDA Members and one dental hygienist who work year-round to bring fresh content and exciting changes to the Pacific Northwest Dental Conference each year. Read on to find out what she is most excited for at PNDC 2017, and don't forget to register!
The PNDC serves as a gathering place for our members to reconnect with one another, strengthen our community as a dental profession, and provide affordable, high-quality CE, so that our members and their teams can continue to deliver the highest quality of care to their patients.
You spoke and the committee listened – from an even further expanded Saturday schedule, to courses aimed at increasing the number of qualified dental assistants in our state, to how quickly our shuttles run, we have continued to improve the PNDC for all attendees.
Online registration is open now! Visit wsda.org/pndc today to register and explore our interactive course schedule. For now, read our PNDC highlights to get a first look at what’s new for 2017.
