ADA Engage

Get involved and have your voice heard in D.C. on issues that affect your practice and patients. Learn More.

More than 158,000 ADA members make it possible for dentistry to be heard in Washington, D.C. With a staff of legislative and policy experts close to Capitol Hill, our proximity, experience, research and representation of the vast majority of dentists make the ADA uniquely effective in lobbying for the dental profession.

Many other critical issues are decided by legislators and regulators at the state level. Although the ADA does not lobby at the state level, we do provide expertise and resources to help state dental societies create and effectively pursue their own policy agendas.

At both the federal and state levels of government, we constantly monitor legislation and, when appropriate, engage in the debate, fighting for things that matter to dentists and the patients they serve.
