2019 Southwest Conference and Expo

WELCOME to the annual DLAT SOUTHWEST CONFERENCE & EXPO!

The DLAT Board of Directors want to thank each of you, our Great Vendors and Our Fellow Dental Lab colleagues for making the last year a great success.

You spoke and we listened!

  • Vendor Day with table clinics have been a huge success and is back by popular demand.
  • New Hotel Venue with plenty of parking, restaurants & shopping nearby makes it a family fun weekend.
  • We believe this location will allow us to grow the meeting with your help and add that TEXAS flair we have all come to enjoy & expect.

As always, Our Valued Attendees, Vendors & Sponsors make for a super meeting. Our hope is that this 2018 DLAT Conference & Expo will reconnect with friends, refresh & enhance your technical-professional experience & help re-energize your business across this state and nation.
