WDS/Delta Special Meetings | September 6, 2017

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 have 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.
