— The ADA celebrated the grand opening of the ADA House at 137 C Street in the District's Capitol Hill neighborhood in June.
The property is located within a two-minute walk to all three U.S. House of Representatives office buildings, making it much easier for representatives or their staff to attend events or meet with their dentist constituents.
"This is a great accomplishment for the Association. Too often when policy is being developed on issues such as health care reform, oral health issues are an afterthought," said ADA President Gary L. Roberts. "The ADA House will be utilized to provide a constant, physical reminder to policymakers of the importance of oral health and other dental issues. The ADA is committed to fighting for those issues that impact the public, patients as well as dentists and their practices."

The House is also a source of pride for ADA members, Dr. Roberts said.
