Component Contacts

The Washington Dental Hygienists' Association (WDHA) is comprised of 14 dental hygiene components. The component numbers were established as each became a chartered member of WSDHA. Each local component elects a Trustee to represent them on the WDHA Board of Trustees.  The Board of Trustees is fiscally responsible for conducting the business of the Washington State Dental Hygienists' Association (dba Washington Dental Hygienists' Association.)

Individual Components hold meetings and educational events at various times as determined by component leadership. The map and contact list below give the approximate geographic location of WDHA components and the individual component Trustee/contact information. The Alliance of Dental Hygiene Practitioners (ADHP), is a partner organization of WDHA and has a separate website that can be accessed by clicking HERE.
