As America's leading oral health advocate, the ADA works tirelessly to advance public policies that will improve the practice of dentistry and the oral health of the American public. Though not exhaustive, below is a list of issues the ADA is currently taking up with Congress and the Administration. As needed, the Association also provides technical support to help dental societies advance their respective state and local policy agendas.
The Association's priorities and positions are based on the major policies (PDF) (Members Only) adopted by the ADA House of Delegates.
