Each year the ADA holds a Dentist and Student Lobby Day in Washington, D.C. This meeting was the largest ever gathering of profession. Over 1,000 dentists, dental students and spouses meeting with their lawmakers on Capitol Hill. The energy at the event was tremendous, creating awareness and conviction about the importance of legislative advocacy.
The Washington office educated members on current dental issues and how to influence legislation and regulations that benefit the dental profession. Dentists, alliance members, dental students, spouse and friends joined together to share experiences and get informed on this year’s dental issues, followed by visits with their individual members of congress.
The Alliance and the ADA feel very strong that your support as spouses/friends of dentists is vital to the future of dentistry. You can become involved by becoming a member of ADPAC for as little as $50.00. You can also sign up for “Engage” with the ADA, which will get your voice heard on legislation impacting dentistry and our patients. It is an easy, fast and effective way to contact your member of congress and actively lobby the ADA’s position. Please be generous and support ADPAC every year and encourage your friends and colleagues to do the same. Get the word out and recruit Alliance members at the same time!
If you have any events or projects in your state related to legislative action please share with our legislative team. Feel free to contact these members.
Remember the “Tooth Party” is strong and effective.
