Welcome everyone to the 2023 Northwest Dental Expo! Our fantastic EDDS committee led by our NWDE Chair, Dr. Brian Wong, have worked diligently over the past year to make this event one of our best yet.
This year’s theme is “Homegrown,” and our goal is to feature individuals of excellence from our own community to share their knowledge and expertise on a variety of topics. We hope you enjoy the fast-paced lecture schedule intended to make it easier for you to experience an increased number of different lectures with topics applicable to all members of your team.
We are proud to be hosting over 100 exhibitors and invite you to visit our exhibit hall. We encourage you to interact with the representatives there to learn more about emerging products and technology and to get the most out of your experience.
Our event would not be possible without the support of our generous sponsors, especially our title sponsor Kingsway Oral Surgery. Thank you all for your continued generosity which allows us to maintain the calibre of experience we aim to provide.
We have many more sessions throughout the year which you can learn more about by visiting our website. Our calendar includes world-renowned clinicians and lecturers which you will not want to miss! We hope you enjoy the 2023 NWDE and look forward to seeing all of you there.

NWDE Chair's Message
Esteemed participants, colleagues, and friends,
With a heart full of excitement and pride, we extend a warm and hearty welcome to the 2023 Northwest Dental Expo (NWDE). In the spirit of unity and resilience, we gather once again, celebrating not only our shared passion for dental excellence but also our ability to thrive and evolve even in the face of unprecedented challenges.
As we reflect on the past two years – a period that has demanded adaptability and ingenuity – we find ourselves drawn to a theme that encapsulates the essence of this moment: "Home Grown." In a world that has redefined the very concept of connection, community, and growth, this theme holds special significance, embodying the collective strength that has brought us here today.
"Home Grown" speaks to our commitment to nurturing and cultivating our talents, knowledge, and relationships right within the heart of our dental community. It encapsulates the idea that growth begins from within, that our shared experiences and expertise form the foundation upon which we build the future of dentistry.
This year's NWDE is a testament to this ethos. Our carefully curated lineup of succinct yet impactful lectures, reminiscent of the engaging style of TikTok, offers a platform for "Home Grown" insights – bite-sized bursts of wisdom that resonate deeply within our professional hearts. These sessions will not only expand your horizons but also celebrate the strength that lies within our own ranks.
We extend our sincere gratitude to the dedicated NWDE committee, our sponsors, exhibitors, and, of course, to each and every one of you who form the core of our dental family. Your unwavering support has made "Home Grown" a reality, and for that, we are profoundly grateful.
As we embark on this unique and enlightening journey, we invite you to immerse yourself fully in the experience. Connect with peers, engage in spirited discussions, and let the "Home Grown" spirit inspire you to reach new heights in your professional endeavours.
The 2023 Northwest Dental Expo is not just an event; it is a celebration of our collective resilience, innovation, and growth. So, with great enthusiasm and anticipation, let us embrace the essence of "Home Grown" and embark on a memorable exploration of knowledge and community.
Welcome to the 2023 NWDE – where our roots pave the way for an extraordinary future.
Let the "Home Grown" journey commence!
Dr. Brian Wong
2023 NWDE Chair
