Component Contacts

The Washington Dental Hygienists' Association (WDHA), comprises 14 dental hygiene societies, referred to as 'Components' of WDHA. They are numbered from 1 to 14 based on when they were chartered as part of the State Association. Each local component has a 'Trustee' who serves on the State Association 'Board of Trustees' as part of the strategic leadership team.


Individual Components hold meetings and educational events at various times as determined by their 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.
