NCDHA Governmental Affairs Committee
Advocacy is an important component in any organization and its members to make legislators aware of their positions on policy issues. Scope of practice, patient access to care, and reimbursement of Medicaid are all examples of issues that require advocacy at the state level. The involvement of every dental hygienist in NC is critical to the success of any advocacy efforts.
NCDHA’s Governmental Affairs Committee promotes the interests of all dental hygienists in North Carolina and works with component dental hygiene associations on issues that are important to you as a dental professional. It is our goal to also work with other organizations and agencies concerned with oral health including the NC Dental Society, the NC Board of Dental Examiners, and the NC Dental Assistants Association to advocate for quality oral health care and professional standards of practice that protect the oral health of our patients and clients.
