Masks are still required in the dental office.
Get resources to help your office communicate mask requirements.
Every year, dozens of new bills are discussed in the state Legislature and Congress that can affect oral health, your patients and your practice. It’s important to take the time to learn about the issues CDA is addressing in Sacramento and the federal issues ADA is handling in Washington, D.C.

Change begins at the local level. You do not need to be an expert in politics to make a difference. Elected officials in Sacramento, Washington, D.C. and locally throughout California want to hear from their constituents, and your stories can make a difference for legislators facing tough decisions on complicated health care issues.
Every cause needs powerful champions to advocate on its behalf. You can help shape the future of dentistry and work toward political change by taking a leadership position. CDA can provide the tools you need to be an effective key contact for your district representatives.

If you are interested in becoming a key contact, please contact Marissa Allen, CDA public affairs specialist, at 916.554.7349.
