The Nevada Dental Association is very active in Nevada politics. Along with a prominent contract lobbyist, 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 with the contract lobbyist 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.

Under SB366, dental therapists would be able to perform permanent procedures, like extractions, and administer anesthesia. All Nevadans – regardless of socioeconomic status – deserve quality dental care from the highest trained professionals. ​

Nevada Dental Association leadership and your lobbying team did the following to STOP this proposed change.
