I recently found that the Washington Dental Service is paying for all of the University of Washington student’s clinical boards. At first I thought there must be some mistake. Surely it was the charitable WDS Foundation that must be giving the gift. After all, it has given $2.4 million dollars to charity. The Puget Sound Business Journal lists the Foundation ninth in their top 75 corporate philanthropists. Nope, the gift was not from the Foundation. It was from WDS.
Did you know that more than half of the WSDA’s membership is age 50 or older? It is a statistic seen throughout the nation and as the baby boomer generation begins to retire it is important to reach out to our next generation of leaders and introduce them to both the tangible and intangible benefits of organized dentistry.
Are you up to the challenge of helping us recruit new members? We certainly hope so but just to make sure here are a few incentives to really get you excited.

After spending four years in dental school, new graduates are well-versed in all the clinical aspects of the job, but often are overwhelmed by the business side of the profession. It's easy to understand why — it can be a daunting task to stay up-to-date with regulatory information, maintain the proper amount of personal and practice insurance, and make sure that your license is current — while simultaneously providing excellent care to your patients. With this in mind, the WSDA has created a New Dentist Guide onThe Source to serve as a resource for new graduates, and as a refresher for those who have established practices.
