Friends Of Dentistry—Fighting for Dentistry, and You
Success in our advocacy efforts should not merely be measured by how well it helps me as a doctor. Instead, success should be measured by how effective we’ve been in helping our members reach their goals, the strength of the legislative voice we have, and our ability to keep our profession strong. We need to maintain a resilient leadership role as it relates to legislative advocacy, especially in a time when all healthcare professions are being challenged. Dentistry is being challenged—our livelihoods are being challenged. In order to do this, we need to make our voice heard in the legislative process. This involves “dentistry” being strongly heard on a local, state and national level.
Members of Friends Of Dentistry appreciate the incredible success of our legislative efforts in the past several years and the hard work of our Council on Government Relations. We believe that our members need to express their appreciation for that success by being members of Friends Of Dentistry. Friends Of Dentistry believes that it is both your duty and responsibility to show support for AzDA’s advocacy on your behalf.
What Does Friends Of Dentistry Support?
This is the time when we all must step up and make sure that we support those candidates who are most in line with our members’ needs and help pave the way for good working relationships in the next few years. That means giving those candidates meaningful financial support in their campaigns.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your past donations, and ask you to be prepared to make a generous donation to Friends Of Dentistry at this upcoming meeting.
The most effective way to have access to our legislators is to have a seat at the table so that we can be proactive addressing any legislation, negatively or positively, that may affect our practices and the oral health or Arizonans.
Help Support the Cause
After all the AzDA Legislative successes of the last several years, can you afford to stand idly by while only a few member dentists of AzDA carry the load on your behalf? Get out that checkbook and dig deep. Make sure that we can continue to support your interests and protect the oral health of all citizens of our great State of Arizona!
