The American Dental Association has been contacting congressional representatives to include key policies in a COVID-19 relief package that are much needed for the dental profession and patients. We are now asking to have your voice heard by pressuring Congress to come back together and fully commit to passing a relief bill by the end of the year. As you have gotten back to work in your offices, we can only expect Congress to do the same.
In addition to urging that lawmakers quickly get to work on the next relief package, we are asking you to highlight the top-level issues the ADA would like to see included in that package. These includes: reforms to the Paycheck Protection Program that would ease the administrative burden for forgiveness, tax credits for PPE, additional student loan relief, liability protections for practices, Medicaid enhancement, incentives for dentists to work in underserved communities, and other policies that will assist practices in providing essential oral health care to their patients.
Please have your voice heard today! Below is a link to the ADA Legislative Center for you to use to contact your representatives.
Thanks for your help with this effort.
