ADSO advocates collectively at the state and federal levels in a manner that represents the interests of all its members. We understand the critical role that oral health has on overall health, and how the DSO model is uniquely positioned to enhance access to care.
Using the association’s legislative and regulatory policies and positions, ADSO advocates before elected officials and regulatory agencies. The association serves as a primary resource to elected officials and policy leaders on issues of importance to Dental Support Organizations. ADSO members actively participate in advocacy efforts to bring about appropriate policy and legislation. The ADSO regulatory and legislative agenda is developed through solicited input from the full membership. The strategic plan is approved each year and reflects the mission and values of the organization.
