The Washington State Society of Orthodontists (WSSO) is your local connection to organized orthodontics. If you are a member - thank you! If you are not yet a member – join us! Become a member at www.aaoinfo.org/membership. The American Association of Orthodontists and Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists provide services including access to the latest advances in the science of orthodontics via publications and meetings, practice management tools, and marketing materials. The AAO is the strongest political voice of orthodontists in the current climate of changes in health care insurance and mandates.
The mission of the WSSO is to help orthodontists in Washington State provide excellent orthodontic care by providing quality continuing education for orthodontists and orthodontic staff, liaising with the Washington State Dental Association for political and practical practice issues, and facilitating communications between the organization and orthodontists.
2016 offers members two great and local educational opportunities for both orthodontists and orthodontic team members. On February 26, 2016 the WSSO presents our annual educational meeting at the Meydenabuer Center in Bellevue. From October 13 to 16, 2016, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists Annual meeting will be in downtown Seattle, at the Washington State Convention Center.
The WSSO is a non-profit organization and all board members are volunteers. The board has five divisions: 1) communications 2) legislative 3) membership 4) orthodontic practice and 5) peer review. If we can be of assistance to you, please contact the WSSO using the “about us” link on this website. If you would like to become involved, please contact me or a member of the WSSO board.
