Legislative Advocacy

Read about our legislative successes for our member dentists.

We are focused on advancing the dental profession in Ohio.

Our consistent and dedicated legislative efforts have had a significant and positive impact on dentistry and Ohio.  From expanding access to care and increasing Medicaid reimbursement rates, to preventing frivolous litigation and dental service taxes, we are proud of our accomplishments.

With your support, our ODPAC team remains committed to continuing these efforts to aid our ODA member dentists and community.

Some of our legislative highlights are: 

  • Improved access to care through teledentistry legislation and licensure portability
  • Maintained access to a Medicaid dental benefit for Ohio adults
  • Increased the ways to earn continuing education to include practice management and volunteer services
  • Protected the exemption for dentists from pharmacy board licensure
  • Protected the educational standards to practice dentistry in Ohio
