Action for Dental Health Introduced in Senate

In February, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the Action for Dental Health Act that would allow organizations to qualify for oral health grants to support activities that improve oral health education and dental disease prevention. The grants would also be used to develop and expand outreach programs establishing dental homes for children and adults.

On June 6, the bill was introduced in the Senate by Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), and Tim Scott (R-SC) and referred to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP).

We need your help to move this measure through Committee! Urge your Senators to cosponsor S. 3016, Action for Dental Health Act of 2018.
