Washington Leadership Conference

ADA Washington Leadership Conference 2015 LogoEvery spring hundreds of dentists gather together in the nation’s capital to advocate for their patients, profession and their practice. At the Washington Leadership Conference (WLC), you will hear from political analysts, subject matter experts, members of Congress and politically involved dentists on issues that affect oral health in the United States. Join your colleagues and the American Dental Association in helping the current efforts on the Hill to ensure your voice is heard by lawmakers.

Who should attend?

All ADA member dentists 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.

The 2015 Washington Leadership Conference will be held from April 27-29 and will be held at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Online Registration and Online Hotel Reservations is now closed please contact Nick DeSarno, Grassroots Manager, at desarnon@ada.org or call 202.789.5168 to register.

WLC Attendee Information

We want to hear from you!

Please use this opportunity in Washington, D.C. to share your experience with your peers and future ADA members. We encourage you to take pictures of your visits with legislators, on the steps of Capitol Hill or other historic DC monuments that we can share with our active social media community. Just take a picture on your smartphone and send it to socialmedia@ada.org telling us who’s in the picture and we’ll take care of the rest to post it on our Facebook and Twitter channels. This is a great opportunity to bring public attention to ADA members advocating for the Action for Dental Health Act to deliver care now to people already suffering with dental disease, strengthen and expand the public/private safety net, and bring dental health education and disease prevention into underserved communities. We hope to hear from you!
