Chairmans Message

On behalf of the Dallas County Dental Society, Welcome to Dallas and to the 94th Southwest Dental Conference.  

Throughout this past pandemic year of on-line meetings and ZOOM fatigue, it is our hope that predictions of “normal” by August 2021 will be accurate. My husband thinks it’s a “safe bet” and he usually wins his bets! The SWDC team and the staff at Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center are working together to ensure the health and safety of all who join us at the Conference. I look forward to elbow-bumping and welcoming you in person, and am excited to be able to gather once again to grow and learn.

Our theme this year is “Actionable Learning”. Building upon a spectacular slate of clinicians assembled by Dr. Missy Jaynes and her 2020 SWDC team, we present a 2021 program that will feed your educational appetite with a feast of information that will be “actionable” when you return to the office on Monday.

Our Exhibit Hall is planned for two full days of networking opportunities with other dentists, strategic partners and service providers. This showcase of the newest products and technology in dentistry will deliver a snapshot of all that is happening in dentistry today.

In addition to providing a healthy dose of our well-known Southern hospitality, SWDC has collaborated with the Omni Dallas Hotel and the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau to help you, your team and your family to relax and revel in everything Dallas has to offer. 

Welcome. Enjoy the program. Enjoy each other. Thank you for being here.


Mary Swift, DDS
Chairman 2021 Southwest Dental Conference
