About Us


"Tacoma Dental Society", now known as the Pierce County Dental Society was organized in 1887.

Currently the Society has over 430 members. Approximately 80% of the dentists in Pierce County are members of the Dental Society. The Society is a non-profit agency. We are dedicated to furthering education, mutual support and better communication with the general public for the purpose of their better dental health.

The Society has a Central Office to provide information on current dental issues, act as a liaison to the outside community, and serve as a support to its member dentists. We have one full-time and two part-time staff persons. The Central Office provides no-cost referral and mediation services for the public. Mediation is done for member dentists only.
