We are pleased to announce that this year is the beginning of a new era in advocacy for the ADA.  This spring hundreds of dental students will join dentists from across the country in the nation’s capital to advocate for their patients, profession and their practice. At the 1st annual ADA Dentist and Student Lobby Day, you will hear from political analysts, subject matter experts and politically involved dentists on issues that affect oral health in the United States. Join 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.

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.

Keynote Speaker

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.  Check back for updates on this years speakers as we get closer to Lobby Day 2017!
