ADA Dentist and Student Lobby Day

ADA_DSLD_Logo_RGBDuring ADA Dentist and Student Lobby Day, students visit Capitol Hill to advocate on behalf of themselves and their patients. This unique experience gives ASDA members the opportunity to meet with lawmakers and staff to discuss the issues that will impact the education and training of dental students and future dentists.

ADA Dentist and Student Lobby Day attendees receive a full day of training on the issues and policies that are up for discussion with lawmakers and their staffs. For the first time in 2017, ASDA members and ADA member dentists joined forces and lobbied as a unified front in Washington. In addition to conducting congressional meetings, attendees networked with and learned from experienced practitioners throughout the meeting.

2022 - Coming soon!
