Event Information

The Kois Center Annual Symposium centers around providing a yearly update on the newest research, products, and protocol in dentistry.

2021 Announcement:

We will not be offering the Spouse or Youth Programs this year.  Unfortunately, due to the fluidity of the COVID-19 situation there is no way to ensure the events would comply with the Washington State guidelines. Thank you for your understanding.


Scientific Program

Dr. John Kois is the primary speaker for the Scientific Program, providing a comprehensive review and analysis of the most current literature, practices, and protocols in esthetic, implant, and restorative dentistry. In addition, each year Dr. John Kois hand picks a keynote speaker and the Kois Center Advisory Board selects Alumni to present during the Scientific Program to further enhance the growth and development of Symposium attendees.

Clinical Instructor Program

The Clinical Instructor meeting affords Kois Center Clinical Instructors (CIs) an opportunity to stay up-to-date on the latest information developed by Dr. Kois, the Kois Center team, Committees, and Members.

As the Kois Center constantly evolves, and as the literature and information dictates, the Center and the CIs recognize the need to carry on training beyond initial qualifications – to maintain, upgrade, and update skills continuously. The meeting provides a time and venue for the CIs to facilitate this training, calibrate to the ever-rising standards, and work closely with Dr. Kois to further develop the Center and themselves.

Youth Program

The Youth Program is a three day, all-inclusive, action-packed program for the kids of those attending the Scientific Program. This supervised program, for youth ages 6 and older, provides a fun way for kids to explore and play throughout the weekend. The focus is on unique Seattle-area activities that the group can do together and enjoy. Past examples have included river rafting, rock climbing, and a scavenger hunt at the Pacific Science Center.
