Welcome to the Washington State Society of Orthodontists!

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 for orthodontists on a national basis in the rapidly changing world of health care.

WSSO Mission

Our first mission is to support orthodontists in Washington State by providing quality continuing education for orthodontists and orthodontic staff. Secondly, we collaborate with the Washington State Dental Association and state dental specialty organizations for political and clinical practice issues of common interest.  Third, we facilitate communication between the all three levels of orthodontic organizations and our orthodontist members. Our fourth mission is providing peer review consultations for our members should the need arise. 

WSSO Annual Meeting

A Virtual General Meeting was held on June 3rd, 2021. This FREE event was open to members and staff. Andrea Cook, our guest speaker, updated attendees on new WA state infection control guidelines. A members-only business meeting followed where we ratified the proposed changes to WSSO Bylaws and elect new officers and board members.

2022 WSSO Meeting: Annual Meeting will be held on Friday, May 6, 2022 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA. Registration information will be forthcoming to the membership. 

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 “Contact us” tab   on this website. If you would like to become involved, please contact me or a member of the WSSO board.
