Are you looking to take the next step in your career and either purchase a practice or become an associate? If so, the Job Fair is the perfect place to begin your search. Join us on February 21st from 3:30- 7 p.m. for the opportunity to meet with up to 25 fellow WSDA members who are looking to sell or expand their practice.

The breakdown of opportunities available are:

  • 8 people looking to hire an associate
  • 11 people are looking to hire an associate with a possibility of a future buy in
  • 5 people are looking to sell their practice

Following an approach similar to speed dating, attendees will be able to sign up for a number of 10 minute interviews to meet those representing opportunities they are interested in. All attendees will leave with a booklet describing all the opportunities available as well as additional ones not represented in person.

A limited number of spots remain to attend this event. Register now!

If you have an opportunity available and would like to attend the Job Fair we have five spots still available. Please fill out this form to reserve your spot. If you have an opportunity you would like to market but are unable to attend the Job Fair please fill out this form.

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.

Special thanks to Steve Steinberg of the UW for the images of the event

Over 100 students and mentors attended the 20th annual Mentor Reception held November 20th at the Burke Museum. The Reception, held in conjunction with the UW Dental Alumni group has undergone a bit of a transformation in the last few years to increase the visibility of the program and encourage participation both on behalf of the students and the mentors. The effects of this increased effort are clear with 20 percent more students participating in the program and an 11 percent increase in WSDA members taking part and volunteering their time and expertise to mentor a student.
