Cultivating a grassroots presence for dentistry in every legislative district is key. The more involved you are at home with your local politicians and their campaigns, the more influence dentistry gains at the legislative level.
Having a key contact dentist for each state legislator is the goal of the TDA grassroots initiative. A key contact dentist is an individual who is committed to the advancement of TDA issues and who serves as a liaison to one or more elected or appointed policymakers.
The duties of a key contact dentist are to relay important information relating to TDA issues during the legislative session, get involved in local campaign initiatives, attend local campaign fundraisers, and deliver campaign contributions.
