There is a direct correlation between dental benefit coverage and the likelihood that someone will seek and receive dental care. That is why the ADA is working with lawmakers, regulators, and others to improve the way dental care is financed and administered, both publicly and privately.
The ADA is committed to expanding and enhancing the way consumers can use pre-tax dollars to pay for dental care and other dental-related items not covered by insurance.
Letters and Testimony reflect the Association's position(s) on specific bills, regulations, and other policy issues, and are based on the major policies and positions (PDF) (Members Only) adopted by the ADA House of Delegates.
