The Seattle-King County Dental Society is a membership society for the almost 1,700 dentists practicing in King County. Each of these dentists is also a member of the Washington State Dental Association
and the American Dental Association.
Seattle-King County Dental Society provides a number of services to the general public (see below). In addition to those services, the Society provides many benefits to member dentists. Continuing Dental Education (a licensing requirement) as well as a quarterly newsletter are among several membership benefits.
Seattle-King County Dental Society is closely affiliated with the Seattle-King County Dental Foundation
. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization that funds numerous programs and services in King County.
Services for the Public
The Seattle-King County Dental Society provides a free referral service for the dentists and specialists in King County. In addition, we provide and refer members of the public to minimum cost dental clinics. Member dentists regularly volunteer their services for events that educate the general public about the importance of good oral health. Additionally, Seattle-King County Dental Society partners with the KidsQuest Children's Museum
in Bellevue on an annual basis to provide dental services and education throughout the entire month of February: National Children's Dental Health Month!
The Society has a number of access to dental care initiatives including the ABCD (Access to Baby and Child Dentistry), donated dental services by our members, a partnership with Medical Teams International
to provide dental clinics across King County, and a sealant program in the Highline School District.
