ADPAC

Helping Shape the Future of Oral Healthcare in the United States

Learning Objectives:

After watching this video, the viewer should:

  • Gain a better understanding of what ADPAC is, and what causes it serves
  • Know the range of topics that ADPAC supports
  • Learn how to become more involved in an organization that advocates for dentists and their patients.

ADPAC, or the American Dental Political Action Committee, is a Political Action Committee of the American Dental Association.  Through financial contributions of member dentists and dental students, ADPAC supports candidates, ballots, or legislation in favor of oral healthcare initiatives.

The causes for which ADA has lobbied for range from clinical topics, such as the use of amalgam or water fluoridation, to provider-related issues such as dental licensure processes and scope of practice, to more overarching topics like healthcare reform, medical taxation, the handling of student loans and debt.  ADPAC fights to preserve the rights of practicing dentists and dental students all around the country.  To learn more about joining ADPAC or your local board members--or even to make a donation--visit http://www.adpac.ada.org.

*Alex Sadak (’14) is a student at the Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine. He was the 2012 award recipient of ASDA’s Legislative Liaison of the Year.
