Your Voice Matters!

Due in large part to the political involvement of KDA members, the Kansas Dental Association has traditionally been very successful in the Kansas legislature. This is a result of the friendships and acquaintances YOU have cultivated with your elected officials. Dental Day 2022 will be the time and place to build upon these relationships.
This event has been designed to allow you the greatest ability to visit with legislators and learn about the political process.  while only disrupting your own office a minimal amount time. For more information and to register, go to KDA Upcoming Events on ksdental.org (click image).

poster for 2022
The theme of National Children's Dental Health Month in February 2022 will be "Sealants Make Sense," focusing on the benefits of sealants for oral health. The NCDHM Program Planning Guide is available online and provides resources to help teach children about good oral health. Click here for more information.
