Why We Go to Dental Conferences

Why We Go to Dental Conferences September 5, 2018 Prosper Family Dentistry is closed this week on Thursday and Friday as our team travels to downtown Dallas to attend the annual Southwest Dental Conference!  This is a yearly tradition for us, and it is one we really enjoy.
