If this is your first Action Alert from us, welcome! Dentistry is so much more than just drilling and filling. As dental professionals, we have an obligation to better our profession for ourselves, our colleagues, and our patients. As your ASDA legislative liaisons, we will send out periodic action alerts. All you have to do to make your voice heard is click the link and spend about 90 seconds of your time.
1. Click here to write to your representatives to pass the Dental Health Bill and go to the senate. More info here but TL;DR: BIPARTISAN BILL with UNANIMOUS SUPPORT that lets orgs get grants for programs (Give Kids a Smile, Mission of Mercy, etc.) that improve oral health education and disease prevention. More outreach programs=more help for vulnerable populations! This is a win-win!
2. Birmingham mayoral, city council and school board elections are Aug 22. Deadline to register to vote is Aug 8. You can do it online and is so easy! This is your community, do your part and get out and vote!
Your Legislative Liaisons,
Colson, Kai, Mark, and Meghana
