Registration for 2018 ADA Dentist and Student Lobby Day opening soon!
April 8-10, 2018
JW Marriott Hotel
Join hundreds of dentists and dental students from across the country in the nation’s capital to advocate for their patients, profession and their practice. At the ADA Dentist and Student Lobby Day, attendees will hear from political analysts, subject matter experts and politically involved dentists on issues that affect oral health in the United States. Think about joining your colleagues, future colleagues, the American Dental Association and the American Student Dental Association in helping our current efforts on the Hill to ensure your voice is heard by lawmakers in years to come.
Who should attend?
All ADA member dentists and ASDA Students are invited to join their colleagues to speak with One Voice United on Capitol Hill. All ADA Action Team Leaders are partially funded by the ADA to attend the conference and meet with their legislator.
Each year we have speakers from around the political and business world to discuss how politics and advocacy got hand and hand with having a successful practice and career.
