As America’s leading oral health advocate, the ADA works tirelessly to influence public policies affecting the practice of dentistry and the oral health of the American public.

In Washington, D.C., the ADA lobbies Congress and the Administration—fighting for things that matter to dentists and the patients they serve. Additionally, the ADA provides technical support and resources to help dental societies advance their respective state and local policy agendas.
