What did Leone & Vaughn learn at the WSSO 2016?

Our doctors and staff attended the meeting to help educate, inform as well as team-build for a stronger, healthier Orthodontic office for our patients and community. In the industry of oral health care, we believe it is extremely important to be always willing to better and further our education in order to provide the best quality care to our patients.
By continuing to learn and improve ourselves as medical providers, our entire staff becomes more adept and passionate about what we have to offer to our Seattle community. In turn, our community is better served and happier with our results. These shared experiences are important because they foster a sense of teamwork. We can’t pass up on the opportunity to learn and build team unity.

How does the Seattle community benefit from our attendance?

We believe that absorbing the knowledge and experience of seasons experts at the 2016 WSSO meeting created a stronger relationship with other orthodontic offices. We all shared stories and experiences that in the end will help build a stronger vision and team.

Together, we conquer. Sometimes, as an office we can become complacent in our routine; so, to fan the fire of how we change peoples lives for the better, we attend events such as the WSSO.
