& just like that -- all the hard work of the leadership team is done. Don't worry, we'll be hard at work come Monday morning. How do you plan on spending your remaining time in Hawaii? #pcso2019 #pearlsinparadise

Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists (PCSO)

Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists (PCSO) is at Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort.

We'd like to thank every one of our vendors who traveled across the Pacific to attend this year's annual session. Being cooped up in an #exhibithall for 6 hours has to be pure torture when the event is held in Hawaii!
.
A quick side note, HURRY and score on those deals while there's still time. Exhibit hall closes at 2pm.
