Vote and Congratulate Legislators

MDHA encourages all dental hygienists and hygiene students to get out and VOTE on November 08, 2022. All 163 house of representative members are up for election or re-election and 17 either new or retained state senators in even-numbered districts have seats up for grabs.

On November 9th find out who your new state senator and state representative are and send them a congratulatory letter! Advocacy is greatest at the grassroots. MDHA needs you to be the point of contact for legislators in your area for issues on oral health!
