We want to be the first one to let you know of some good news. For the first time in five years, the Washington State Dental Association has seen an increase in our market share rather than a decrease. The American Dental Association's 2013 end of the year Recruitment and Retention report indicates the WSDA has a 71% market share of all practicing dentists in Washington compared to 70% in 2012. While this is not a substantial increase, it’s a move in the right direction for the first time in a while.
This could only happen with forward-thinking leaders in place on our Task Force on Membership and Board of Directors, providing input and direction towards R&R. Thanks to them we have moved the needle, and we will continue to make this matter a focus of the Association! Please take a minute to congratulate your colleagues on the Task Force and the Board for their diligence.
And it's not too early to say…GO HAWKS!
