WDS/Delta Special Meetings & Results
On Wednesday, September 6, 2017, hundreds of WDS/Delta member dentists convened at the Lynnwood Convention Center for special meetings to vote upon proposed amendments to WDS/Delta's bylaws. Thousands more dentists voted by proxy form.
The numbers show that WDS/Delta member dentists gained a solid victory in their pursuit of common-sense bylaw amendments.
In fact, both slates of proposed amendments passed with more than 91% of the over 2,300 votes cast.
However, the Washington Dental Service Board of Directors reviewed the bylaw amendments approved by member dentists and, while WDS elected to implement certain amendments, many were vetoed by WDS independent directors.
