ADA Student Lobby Day - 2018


The ADA Student Lobby Day held in Washington DC on April 8th-10th was a huge success and in fact this year, the number of participating students was greater than any year previous! "If there's one thing I took from last week's ADA Dentist and Student Lobby Day, it was that nearly 1,100 voices are impossible to ignore! That's how many dentists, dental students, state association staff and other dental leaders gathered in the nation's capital for what is expected to rank as one of the largest and most successful advocacy events for any health care association this year." - Dr. Crowley, ADA President
