Our Leadership Development Retreat is in the books! PDHA hosted a dynamic session with Dr. Kelly Tanner and the attendees loved this session! All attendees received the book "Leader Shift" by John C. Maxwell and Dr. Tanner led incredible interactive activities for the group. This session was so very valuable to propel attendees to the next level both in and out of the operatory. A big thank you to our sponsors, Premier Dental, ToothShower, Penn College of Technology and Cetylite. One lucky attendee won a ToothShower in a giveaway drawing!
