Only you can explain the importance of oral health to our legislators!

Interaction With Your Legislators:
The Massachusetts Dental Society staff will assist you in scheduling an appointment to meet with legislators in their offices. To schedule your meeting simply complete the registration form, return it to MDS, and someone from our office will begin the process of scheduling your appointment. These meetings will ensure that all legislators hear from their local dentists about the importance of oral health.
Once you have completed your State House visits, please return to the Omni Parker House for lunch and a guest speaker!
