WDS has begun sending letters to its member dentists informing them of the Special Meeting as a result of the recently circulated petition. The Special Meeting will take place on Friday, November 11, at 2pm, in the Grand 2-3 Conference Room at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Seattle Airport. WDS is requesting that members arrive 45 minutes in advance to accommodate the credentialing process. Photo ID is required and only WDS members in “good standing” will be allowed to attend.
Last year, the WSDA introduced the Leadership Institute, a one-year program designed to guide and mentor dentists to become leaders within the Association.
Washington Dental Service, the state’s largest dental insurer, has slashed payments to dentists for the first time in its history, saying it needs to make dental insurance more affordable for businesses. But dentists say the cuts may force compromises in patient care.
Two long-time members of the WSDA recently awarded prestigious posts in the health and dental communities. We’re proud of their accomplishments in the name of organized dentistry!
