COVID Webinars & Other Resources

Dear Spokane District Dental Society,

Last night, Governor Inslee issued an order that requires everyone to stay home. While this order does state that essential businesses, including dental offices, can stay open during the two week mandate, his March 19 executive order prohibiting “non-urgent procedures that require medical and dental professionals to wear personal protective equipment” is still in effect until May 18.

Please take a moment to review the following resources available to you and visit for additional information.
