The Nevada Dental Association is very active in Nevada politics. Along with contract Lobbyists, Nevada has an Executive Director, Dr. Robert Talley, who was born and raised in Las Vegas and practiced dentistry there for 26 years. He works as part of an effective team to attend legislative events, regulatory meetings and to create relationships with and educate legislators on issues important to dentists and their patients. It is a true member value to have a dentist paid to give his full attention to advocacy efforts when in most states this is done on a volunteer basis. Membership is important so we can continue to have this voice for dentistry.
The NDA provides access to all the latest news on legislative issues, tools, templates, and guides. See our Award winning NDA Journal Quarterly Publications and NDA Monthly Newsletters with content provided from our own dentist members in Nevada.
