is Moore (D-KS) became co-sponsors of the Children's Dental Health Improvement Act.

The morning of the Hill visits, attendees gathered to watch their president, Dr. Mayher, present Congressman Mike Simpson (R-ID-2), a dentist himself, with the AGD's Legislator of the Year Award. The AGD also honored Reps. Elijah Cummings (D-MD-7) and Rick Larsen (D-WA-2) with appreciation awards for their support for oral health initiatives.

"The entire session was extremely informative about issues facing the dental profession, especially the practicing general dentist," said Iowa AGD Legislative Chair, Stephen Thies, DDS. "I strongly believe that it is our responsibility to speak on dental issues to the legislative groups involved. I am glad to lobby either nationally or locally on behalf of the AGD on any issues affecting general dentistry."

About the AGD

The AGD is a professional association of more than 35,000 general dentists dedicated to staying up-to-date in the profession through continuing education. Founded in 1952, the AGD has grown to become the world's second largest dental association, and the only association that exclusively represents the interests of general dentists.

More than 786,000 persons are employed directly in the field of dentistry. A general dentist is the primary care provider for patients of all ages and is responsible for the diagnosis, treatment, management and overall coordination of services related to patients' oral health needs.
