To encourage dentists and others to understand and actively participate in the government processes that affect access to oral health care and the prevention of dental disease.
To raise the awareness of dentists and others as to the records of officeholders and candidates for elective office, for those offices that may have a direct impact on dental access and prevention efforts.
To assist dentists and others in organizing themselves for more effective political action and in carrying out their civic responsibilities to promote good government and foster interest in oral health care access and the prevention of dental disease.
To do all things necessary or desirable for the attainment of the purposes stated above.
