Installation of Officers & Member Recognition Meeting
Featuring WSDA President Dr. Denny Bradshaw
Tuesday, April 27, 2021 6:00 - 9:00 PM 2 CE credits
Special Thanks to our Sponsor: Omni Practice
We live in extraordinary times and the role of organized dentistry is more important than ever before. Unity as a profession is vital as we navigate the influence of government and the insurance industry upon the practice of dentistry. Dr. Bradshaw will share up-dates on what is happening legislatively, as well as what the WSDA is doing regarding the pandemic, workforce and dental benefits. Additionally, we will honor our Life Members and our newest elected Society Officers. In addition, we will vote to approve the proposed bylaws amendments. Join us for a virtual celebration of organized dentistry!
About Our Presenter: Dr. Denny Bradshaw is an active restorative dentist with a practice in Pasco, Washington. He originally went into practice with his father, with whom he worked alongside for 23 years before the elder Dr. Bradshaw retired. Dr. Bradshaw attended Loma Linda University for his dental training where, like today, he was very involved in leadership. In addition to his 6 years on the WSDA Board of Directors, Dr. Bradshaw has been working to plan and manage the Pacific Northwest Dental Conference for more than 10 years. Amidst these challenging times, Dr. Bradshaw has taken the role of WSDA President for an unprecedented second term.

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.
