I need to find a dentist that will make a house call in Washington st.
 My son is house bound due to a disability, and has a cavity that he
needs worked on.  Any info would be great.

Where in Washington State? I live in Seattle and am familiar with
searching for anything in Seattle, King County, and Washington State
in general, but I'd like you to narrow it (way) down.

Is there any reason why the resources mentioned in the comments will
not work for you?  I won't duplicate information, but it seems to me
that this is essentially "answered."
There is no answer at this time.

Hi buschtall-ga, and thanks for your question.

There is a group in Washington that serves exactly the need you
describe.  I just noticed that Pink posted a comment describing this
group, so I won't post this as an Answer.

The Decod program at the University of Washington School of Dentistry,
which began in 1974, trains dentists to travel in the community
delivering care at patient's homes who wouldn't otherwise be able to
receive dental care.  Here are two articles on the program from
BizJournals.  You may need to register (free) to read these.

Here is contact information for Decod:

Teaching and research in the education and care of persons with disabilities
Administration, B-316 Health Sciences, 206-543-1546
Clinic, B-239 Health Sciences, 206-543-4619, FAX, 206-685-8412
Glenn Govin, director

Here is a page (aimed at seniors) with some rates and more information:
