A Letter from the ADPAC Board

The American Dental Political Action Committee, ADPAC, is the bipartisan voice of thousands of dentists who join together to help elect candidates to federal office who understand the importance of dentistry and dentistry’s unrelenting commitment to improving oral health care in America. By supporting ADPAC, the profession of dentistry remains strong and its principles uncompromised.

We hope you find the updated ADPAC website to be a useful tool to get involved and learn more.

This site will provide you with vital information about the PAC, how to join, how to get involved, and much more.  You will also be able to enroll electronically or increase your contribution if you are already an ADPAC member. Your membership means more than contributions; it means solidifying our position in a competitive environment and creating greater opportunity for your practices and patients.

It has never been more important to stand by our principles of electing the best people to public office. This is critical as we build on the foundation of ADA’s core values to help create a more solid future for our nation and for dentistry.

As always, we welcome your feedback and thank our members for your continued support.


Dr. Charles McGinty
Chairman, ADPAC

ADPAC is a federally registered political committee and the contributions it receives are used to support federal candidates and committees. Contributions to ADPAC are voluntary and any person has the right to refuse to contribute without reprisal. The contribution guidelines are merely suggestions and a person may contribute more, less or not at all without concern of favor or disadvantage by the ADA. Corporate donations will not be used by ADPAC for contributions but will be used exclusively to pay for the administrative and operating expenses for ADPAC or related political activity. Contributions are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal tax purposes. Federal law requires ADPAC to request the name, address, occupation, and employer for each person whose contributions exceed two hundred dollars ($200.00) in a calendar year. If you need additional information, please contact us at 202.898.2424 or govtpol@ada.org.

Engage allows ADA members to contact their legislators and stay informed on critical public policy issues that affect dentistry.
