Tell Congress to Support the Senate Pass Through Provision

The House and Senate are in the midst of conference negotiations to draft a final tax reform bill. The conference is moving quickly and the conference committee expects to get a bill to the President's desk in the next two weeks.

Can we count on you to tell your Congressional Members that our dental offices are key "main street" businesses and should be treated equally?

TAKE ACTION today and tell Congress that our dental offices are small businesses and the backbone of our local economies.

Tell Your Senators to Pass CHIP Reauthorization Now

The House has passed its reauthorization of CHIP but the Senate has not scheduled a full vote for its own CHIP reauthorization bill.

Reach out to your Senator and urge them to pass a CHIP reauthorization bill for 2018 funding through ADA Engage.

November 30 was designated as a “day of action” to seek continued funding to advance the positive oral health benefits our nation’s underserved children obtain through the CHIP program, but the Senate has yet to consider the issue.
