DTA Working For You

Just last week, 35 DTA members and staff spent a day on Capitol Hill visiting members of Congress to discuss repealing the Medical Device Tax and amending the Sunshine Act. The fact that oral health is critical to overall health was another important part of the message to lawmakers. It's crucial that all DTA members participate in our advocacy program. Even if you didn't attend our Washington day, you should contact your elected officials locally. Please, contact us for an advocacy packet like the one we used on Capitol Hill.

We have two new services for DTA members this year. I encourage you to take advantage of the DentalMarketTrends™ report that tracks dental procedure trends and their associated costs by region and specific procedure categories. Additionally, the DTA Leadership Institute launches this month and will provide your senior and emerging leader staff with critical management skills to help navigate the rapidly changing dental industry.
