Advocacy in Action: Dentists at the Capitol Day 2019
The CDA hosted its annual Dentists at the Capitol Lobby Day on Friday, Feb. 15. Lobby Day is a unique opportunity for dentists across Colorado to talk with legislators about the important issues that affect the dental community. This year, a group of 25 dentists and CU dental students lobbied state legislators on several issues. The group's overarching message to legislators highlighted dentists' expansive work to improve access and value over the last several years.
The state of Colorado has a Senior Dental Care program that provides reimbursement for low-income seniors to receive important preventive and restorative care, as well as dentures. This program is being considered for potential expansions. If you have participated as a care provider under this program, we ask for your feedback on program successes and potential improvements. If you are aware of the program and have chosen not to participate, we would also appreciate your feedback. Provide your input by completing this short survey.
