join us for a virtual dentist day!
COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on so many aspects of our lives; it’s no surprise that it’s also made for a nearly all virtual session of the Maryland General Assembly. It will be like none other and undoubtedly will change as we continue adjusting to the virus. If you’d like to know more about the schedule of the Maryland General Assembly, please visit: mgaleg.maryland.gov.
This also creates a new look for our annual Dentist Day. The look may be different, but the goals remain the same:
- Create and build relationships with legislators.
- Learn about and advocate for legislation important to the practice of dentistry.
- Enjoy the camaraderie of organized dentistry.
A virtual format provides an opportunity to try new ideas. This year we are hosting a legislative Q&A with several legislators and making available time to set up meetings during the whole week to provide more flexibility for our legislators and MSDA members. We will continue to provide you with assistance to be educated on the issues, informational materials in digital format for your legislators, and logistical support for confirming meetings.
We’re looking forward to new opportunities and what we hope is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in a virtual Dentist Day.
