Join the Movement

Join the Action for Dental Health movement by asking your legislator to support the Action for Dental Health Act 2014 (H.R. 4395), which funds two federal grant programs aimed at improving access to dental health for America’s most underserved populations.

One grant would provide $10 million annually to qualified state and local organizations offering free dental services for underserved populations. The second would provide $10 million annually to organizations implementing Action for Dental Health initiatives that address specific problem areas, such as helping patients in nursing homes and those who turn hospital emergency rooms for dental pain. Both grants are limited to five fiscal years after enactment.

You can track the bill’s progress online.

Engage allows ADA members to contact their legislators and stay informed on critical public policy issues that affect dentistry.
