Dental Referral Program for Children

Find a Pediatric Dentist

The Washington State Dental Association (WSDA) wants to ensure that every child in Washington State who wants to utilize their dental coverage is able to find a dentist. To achieve this goal, the WSDA has established a dental referral program that provides children who are unable to find a dentist with several referral options in their area.

If your child is currently looking for a dentist, please click "Request a Referral" below and take a few minutes to fill out the survey. A staff member of the WSDA will contact you within one business day of submission with a list of nearby referrals accepting your current dental insurance plan.
