Please note that by submitting your registration, you grant Seattle Study Club, Inc, permission to use your likeness in photographs or videos in any and all publications and materials without payment or consideration made to you.


Some information or presentations may include controversial materials or commercial references. Seattle Study Club, Inc, cautions all course participants that there is potential risk to using limited knowledge when incorporating new techniques and procedures into their practices, especially when the continuing education program has not provided them with supervised clinical experience in the techniques or procedures to ensure that they have attained competence.


This brochure represents the speakers booked at the time of publication; however, speaker cancellations occasionally occur for reasons beyond our control. In the event of such an occurrence, speaker substitutions may be made without prior notice.


Of the 12 sessions made available in the Friday morning clinical breakouts, 5 will be offered as participative/hands-on sessions intended to teach a particular subject, technique, or skill that involves the audience. Participants will actively manipulate dental materials and devices, and practice clinical skills and techniques under the live supervision of a qualified instructor(s). Instructor-to-attendee ratio is most critical in participation courses and great care has been taken to ensure that close supervision and adequate direct interchange between participants and instructors will take place. Space for each hands-on course is limited and made available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Note: Because space is limited, your credit card will be charged $250 should you “no-show” for a hands-on course you select during your registration. To avoid being charged, simply contact the SSC office no later than January 18, 2019 to change your class selection so another clinician can take the place in the hands-on course you are no longer interested in attending.
