In November, the Kellogg Foundation released a new 9 minute dental therapist video with footage from Kansas, Washington, and Alaska. The video dicusses the potential implementation of the dental therapist model outside of Alaska. WSDA continues to advocate against the dental therapist model. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or if you would like to get involved in our grassroots advocacy program.
The WSDA and Sesame Communications, the leading provider of online patient connection systems for the dental industry, today announced an exclusive program for WSDA members. WSDA members can now receive a no obligation online effectiveness consultation and an additional five percent discount on the cloud-based Sesame 24-7™ integrated online system.

Please make it a top priority to attend the upcoming WDS special meeting. What will it cost you if you have to cancel patients for one day, assuming you work on Fridays ? This meeting will not reverse the surprise and abrupt fee decrease from June 15, 2011. But it may help prevent similar surprises in the future which will cost you a lot more than one day’s overhead expense and income. See John Weaver’s post; he says it like it is ! The Concerned Dentists of Washington State want to thank everyone for any support you have so far given toward the cause.
