Throughout February, KDA will be hosting a series of advocacy days. Our KDA Advocacy Days may be different from our legislative day in Frankfort over the last six years. Some of us might miss spending the day out of the office. Others may miss those big cookies at the end of our lunch buffet line. (Remember buffets?) What we will still offer this year is education, information and training on policymaking and advocacy. Of course, we will be discussing legislation and the legislative process. We will also provide new opportunities to connect with your legislator and hear from key legislative leaders.

With all the Zoom training we’ve had these last ten months, we may have found a way to better engage more members in advocating on behalf of themselves and the dental profession.

We hope this virtual environment will allow KDA members to:

  • Call your legislator and introduce yourself.
  • Offer to share 2021 KDA legislative priorities list.
  • Choose a priority from that list that speaks to you and make it speak to them.
  • Invite them to visit your practice.
  • Encourage them to contact you as a resource on oral health issues.
  • Let KDA Executive Director Rick Whitehouse know how it went.




Active representation in the Kentucky State Legislature on issues relating to dentistry will preserve your professional status and allow your voice to be heard regarding positions on legislative and regulatory issues. Legislative Alerts from the KDA office keep members informed of new actions affecting dentistry at your state Capitol.
