As America’s leading oral health advocate, the American Dental Association (ADA) works tirelessly to influence public policies affecting the practice of dentistry and the oral health of the American public.

In Washington, D.C., the ADA lobbies Congress and the Administration—fighting for things that matter to dentists and the patients they serve. Additionally, the ADA provides technical support and resources to help dental societies advance their respective state and local policy agendas.

At the local level, the DC Dental Society actively advocates on local issues of concern to the dental profession with the District of Columbia.
