DENTAL DAY 2019 

Each year, the Kansas Dental Association designs this one-day event to allow members to visit with legislators and learn about the political process, while helping shape legislation affecting the dental profession.  
This year, the Fifth District is looking into chartering a bus to transport members and dental students to Topeka, providing an opportunity for experienced attenders to partner with newcomers through the day's events. We need to put some numbers together, so if you are interested in riding a bus together to attend Dental Day, email Nedra Sparks.
