2021 Dentists’ Day on the Hill
The virtual DDOH will take place remotely on Tuesday, March 16. We are continuing to host DDOH on Tuesday (instead of a Monday or Friday), since this was the original date set and could most likely garner active participation from legislators. We want to encourage everyone to take advantage of this unique opportunity and register to be a part of this virtual advocacy day. For those who have never participated in DDOH, this is your chance to hear directly from legislative leaders on their support for the FDA’s legislative agenda. You’ll get to see your FDA leaders in action as we move forward with our one-on-one meetings with key legislators prior to the start of the 2021 Legislative Session. Please check your emails for additional information on the specific schedule for the virtual DDOH that will be sent at a later date.
And what is a legislative day without member engagement! We need you to be a part of this virtual day on the Hill! You’ll get to pose questions to legislators and gain insight on what is happening on specific issues related to dentistry. We’re also giving away prizes to the members who really get into the spirit of advocacy and go above and beyond to participate in the virtual DDOH — more information will be sent at a later date on how you can get points to be eligible for a prize.
So, register today for 2021 DDOH at floridadental.org/virtualddoh. Once you’re registered, you’ll receive information directly from an FDA team member on what you need to know and how you’ll be able to join the virtual DDOH. If you already registered for DDOH, you’ll receive an email reconfirming your registration for the virtual day instead of in person. You’ll also be directed to immediately cancel your hotel reservation.
I look forward to seeing you at our virtual DDOH and hope that you can still support our legislative efforts, even if we must do it remotely. For more information, please contact the FDA’s Governmental Affairs Office at [email protected] or 850.224.1089.
Don’t forget: DENTAL CARE IS ESSENTIAL CARE!
