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.

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.
