Peer Review

The Peer Review Committee meets once a year and is open to any member volunteer who has been practicing for at least five years. The committee operates within the WSDA Peer Review Procedure Manual and provides free mediation for patients who have quality of care concerns about a member's treatment.​ To watch a video about how Peer Review works, please click the link below.

Continuing Education Classes

To renew their dental license, a dentist is required by the Washington State Legislature (WAC 246-817-440) to complete 21 hours of continuing education annually. As a member benefit, SKCDS sponsors several continuing education classes each year. Click the link below for more information or to register for a class.

Continuing Education Classes

New Dentist Programs

Starting in January of each year, SKCDS offers a social get-together and monthly series of free programs for new dentists. The​se evening meetings include food and beverages and feature speakers presenting topics that are of special interest to new dentists. Our New Dentist Programs are open to all SKCDS members under 40 and/or members with less than 10 years of membership. We also host regular happy hour events after work at various venues in the greater Seattle area.​
