2017 Washington Conference

Event Date: 
Tuesday, April 25, 2017 to Wednesday, April 26, 2017

DTA members from across the country attended the annual Washington Conference, meeting with a record number of 54 U.S. senators and representatives from DTA members’ districts to discuss Americans’ oral health, the business case for oral health and continuing efforts to repeal the Medical Device Tax and amend the Sunshine Act.

“I learned long ago, if you don’t speak up and let your elected officials know how legislation is affecting us, no one else will,” said Dental Health Products, Inc. Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Steve Desautel. “The DTA Washington, D.C. event is helpful (along with our lobbyists) in delivering that message. Great work by the DTA team and its membership in coming together annually to deliver these messages and getting our voice heard.”
