Phoenix Park Hotel, Washington, D.C.
Registration Deadline:

Hotel Information:     The reservation deadline for our group rate at the Phoenix Park Hotel was March 19. Please call DTA's Julie Thomas (703) 379-7755 if you need to secure a hotel room for this event.

Join us on April 10-11 as we reach out to thank congressional leaders for suspending the medical device tax and ask for their support for its repeal. A revision to the Sunshine Act will also be addressed, as well as other crucial oral health topics.

The DTA Washington Conference provides members with an effective way to become involved in federal legislation, and to educate congressional leaders about our industry and the importance of oral health care for Americans. This two-day, member-only event starts with a briefing on Tuesday afternoon followed by Capitol Hill meetings on Wednesday. DTA members will visit with their members of Congress and staff to discuss oral health and industry issues and invite them to visit their businesses to develop and foster ongoing relationships and dialogue.

“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 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.”

Please call DTA if you have any questions (703) 379-7755.
