INDC Update

The impact of the COVID-19 crisis is now being felt across the country, with conference organizers increasingly being urged to cancel large gatherings and for all of society to limit group interactions. In response to CDC guidance, ADA recommendations, State of Washington directives, and many institutional bans on travel, the SDDS leadership has determined that we will be unable to hold the Inland Northwest Dental Conference as planned on April 23rd-25th. We remain grateful to our exhibitors and speakers who have invested considerable effort in creating an outstanding conference. SDDS understands the inconvenience and our Leadership team is working hard to reschedule and create a solution for all to obtain their continuing education. We will notify everyone as soon as we have additional information.
