Legislative Advocacy

Communicate your perspectives on issues impacting dentistry.

When contacting your legislators it is important to:

  • Let them know you are a constituent and a member of the ODA.
  • Discuss ODA legislative priorities.
  • Thank them for their time and support.
  • Let them know that you are happy to help at any time they have questions about dentistry.

Be sure not to:

  • Discuss any legislation not included in the ODA legislative agenda.
  • Pledge any funds or future support.
  • Imply that ODPAC support of the legislator’s campaign is contingent upon his/her support of ODA issues.
  • Criticize any state agency.
