Dr. Kevin Kwiecien: Airway in the Restorative Practice - An Interdisciplinary Approach
The correlation to worn teeth, TMD, GERD, and sleep is well-documented. A protocol to examine, identify, and treat is critical for the restorative dentist, as well as the inter-disciplinary team. A comprehensive approach can result in a state-of-the-art diagnostic process and thereby resulting in optimal care. This topic will be relevant with general practitioners, as well as orthodontists, surgeons, and other specialists. The meeting will be held Tuesday, January 26, 2021, 6:30 - 9:00 PM and 2 CE credits will be awarded. Meetings are free to members, but you must register in advance. This meeting will be offered virtually through Zoom, please register using the link below

MEMBER BENEFIT - PPE Supplier List
Your Success fuels SKCDS Success - Under the Member Login drop down menu - go to RESOURCES and SKCDS has compiled a list of vendors with PPE supplies for your offices. Our Members requested this information, SKCDS Leadership listened and we are providing dentists the resources to help protect our patients, the public, your team and yourself. We are better - together.
Fit Testing for PPE is Underway!
SKCDS in partnership with WSDA, has gathered, and trained, a group of volunteers to provide Fit Tests to King County dental offices. This service is FREE to members. For non-members, we request a donation of $100, per office, to purchase supplies so the program may continue. To schedule a fit test for your office, go to the "Members Login" Drop Down Tab - select "Resources", there members will find a list of volunteers. Contact 1-2 volunteers located geographically closest to your office. Volunteers will schedule their own testing visits based upon availability. Non-member dental offices can contact SKCDS to make a donation and gain access to the names of Fit Test volunteers. We ask that dental offices coordinate with their Fit Test volunteers to mitigate risks. Depending on the number of people needing to be fit tested, the test fit process takes about 1 hour to complete. For more information or if a non-member dentist, please contact Sandra at email@example.com or call 206-448-6620.
