ADA Believes Tax Bill Will Benefit Majority of Dentists, Patients

On December 20, 2017, the U.S. House and Senate both passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, legislation that revamps the U.S. tax code for the first time in more than 30 years. 

The ADA was successful in getting a number of ADA policy priorities included in the final bill, which it believes will benefit the majority of dentists and their patients. President Donald J. Trump is expected to sign the bill in the coming days.

The ADA will continue to advocate for a five-year reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program, Action for Dental Health programs, student loan issues and funding for community health centers.
