ADA urges dentists to tell Congress to oppose Medicare Part B dental benefit proposal

The ADA is calling on member dentists to contact their members of Congress to oppose proposed legislation that would put dental care in Medicare Part B and is being considered by the House Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce committees, according to ADA News.
The ADA has proposed an alternative approach to expand access to oral health care for seniors that adheres to the ADA's policy.
In an email to dentists, ADA President Daniel J. Klemmedson reminded them of the power of advocacy. "You CAN make a difference," he wrote. "During the COVID-19 pandemic, over 160,000 dentists wrote to Congress, and this helped ensure that Congress passed laws that supported dentistry. We need you to take action now by contacting your members of Congress."
The ADA is calling this an urgent issue, and dentists are encouraged to visit the to directly contact their members of Congress. All dentists, including those who have written to Congress on this issue in the past, should do so. The Medicare dental proposal is being considered right now by House committees.
