What is Dental Action Day?
Dental Action Day (DAD) is a free grassroots lobbying event where WSDA staff set up appointments with dentists and their local legislator(s) to discuss issues important to the dental profession. Each meeting occurs in a small group, lasts around 15 minutes, and is a great opportunity for dentists to share their ideas and positions with elected officials. No prior legislative experience is necessary to attend. Attendees will be given a detailed 2017 WSDA legislative agenda, a list of active dental related bills, and talking points for each legislator meeting. We will set everything up, all you have to do is show up!
