What Is the Leadership Institute?

The Leadership Institute is a program designed to foster new leadership in organized dentistry by getting participants involved in a variety of WSDA activities and meetings.

The program provides an opportunity for WSDA members, in small cohorts of five to seven participants, to gain a better understanding of organized dentistry at the state level and to build relationships with WSDA leaders. Participants are paired with WSDA Board of Directors or past president mentors who shepherd them through several activities tailored to developing emerging leaders from within our membership.
