CDS Special Events

CDS organizes members-only special events occasionally to promote social networking and professional development. Events have included watching the Chicago Cubs from a Waveland Avenue rooftop deck or seeing the Chicago Blackhawks from luxury suites. We also host a New Dentists Networking Night each summer.

CDS members are a great source of knowledge and experience. Get together with your colleagues at the next CDS Regional Meeting or your branch's next meeting or social event.

It’s the perfect venue for a grand CDS special event.
