Component Societies

Component societies are the foundation of the WSDA. They play an integral role in implementing state projects at the local level and in representing the dental profession in their communities. Components elect their own officers and are assured representation at the annual House of Delegates meeting.

If you’re a dental professional thinking about relocating to Washington state, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled some demographic information on all 17 component societies that together make up the Washington State Dental Association.

Seattle-King County Dental Society Demographics

If you’re a dental professional thinking about relocating to Washington state, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled some demographic information on all 17 component societies that together make up the Washington State Dental Association.

County: King

King County Population: 1,737,034
Number of WSDA members: 1,546

Seattle-King County is a landscape of mountains, water and city skyline all painted perfectly together in one view. Here, more than anywhere else in the world, the forefronts of technology and urban culture stand arm in arm with dramatic coastline and high alpine terrain.

The climate and style are decidedly comfortable. So, don’t believe what you hear: Seattle actually gets less rain per year than New York, Chicago, Miami or Atlanta. Winters are mild and summers are perfection, with persistent blue skies and temperatures that make air conditioning unnecessary. Snow is rare downtown, but a number of impressive ski areas, some less than an hour away, receive more of the white stuff than any region on Earth. The mild climate also makes activities like golfing, fishing, whale watching and hiking possible year round.

And in the shadow of the Space Needle, the monorail runs right through the undulating architecture of the Experience Music Project, an interactive journey to the soul of rock music. Seattle is also one of the few cities in the U.S. to boast a major opera, symphony and ballet company.

The North Pend Oreille Scenic Byway provides residents with an opportunity to experience the solitude of the Selkirk Mountains and to discover the legacy that local pioneers have left in this northeast corner of Washington state.

The city of Spokane, the heart of the Inland Northwest, encompasses Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho and Western Montana. The name comes from the Native American tribe that makes its home in this area and means "Children of the Sun," which is exactly what residents find in Spokane.

Walla Walla Valley Dental Society Demographics

If you’re a dental professional thinking about relocating to Washington state, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled some demographic information on all 17 component societies that together make up the Washington State Dental Association.

Counties: Walla Walla, Columbia, Garfield, Asotin

Walla Walla County Population: 55,180
Columbia County Population: 4,064
Garfield County Population: 2,397

Nestled at the foot of the Blue Mountains, this community is steeped in history and blessed with beauty. Walla Walla has often been called an "oasis in the desert" because of the abundance of trees in this generally arid region.

Variety is the key word to a bountiful lifestyle in these parts. Outdoor activities abound. Whether it’s camping, hiking, mountain-biking, snowmobiling, snow skiing, golfing, or picnicking and relaxing with the family, you’ll find just the perfect spot in the Walla Walla Valley.

The Walla Walla area is also home to more than 40 wineries and as many vineyards, whose operators work hand in hand to produce world class wines of exceptional character. Not surprisingly, agriculture is the dominant industry in the county, and within Walla Walla County are two of the world’s largest farms.

Along with agriculture, the influence of three hospitals, three colleges, the United States Army Corps of Engineers, the Washington State Penitentiary, and urbanites fleeing the “big city” for a better quality of life have helped to stabilize the valley’s overall economy.
