AGD honors lawmakers for commitment to dental health
Updated: 3/13/2009 11:00:13 AM

AGD honors lawmakers for commitment to dental health This week the Academy of General Dentistry held its third annual government relations conference and honored two senators and one congressmen for their dedication to ensuring citizens have quality dental care.

Senator Thad Cochran (Republican from Missouri) and Representative John D. Dingle (Democrat also from Missouri) were given the 2009 Legislative Appreciation award by the AGD.

Cochran recently introduced legislation to provide grants to community health centers to expand dental care services and to provide tax credits for dentists and for those with no access to dental insurance. Dingle introduced the Children's Dental Health Improvement Act, aimed at bringing dental health services to low-income children.

Also honored was Senator Benjamin L. Cardin who was given the Legislator of the Year award. The Democrat from Maryland championed the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) reauthorization bill to include proposals for a guaranteed dental benefit, a dental education program for parents of newborns and a new Department of Health and Human Services website and toll-free number for dental coverage information.

Paula S. Jones, AGD president, said the honorees were recognized for their commitment to dental health and for addressing the issues of general dentists to Congress.
