‘It is powerful when dentists unite’

ADA prioritizes 2022 advocacy issues

Dental insurance and student debt reform. Improving Medicaid. Health equity.

Every year the ADA prioritizes the issues the Association believes have the most impact on dentists, the dental profession and public. These issues are one of the main focuses of Lobby Day, which every year brings dentists and dental students together to advocate on behalf of the profession. But they are also issues the ADA advocates for every day.

“Through advocacy efforts, the ADA fulfills our mission to help dentists succeed and support the advancement of public health,” said ADA President Cesar R. Sabates, D.D.S. “Each year, the ADA's advocacy has an impact on more than 25,000 dental students and more than 200,000 of our dentist colleagues. Perhaps most importantly, it also affects millions of patients. The message is clear: It is powerful when dentists unite."
