AGD Applauds Sen. Cardin Oral Health Initiative Bill; Urges All Senators to Co-Sponsor Measure
Date:5/27/2008

CHICAGO, May 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) applauds the recent introduction of the "Oral Health Initiative Act of 2008" by Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-MD) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME). The bill, S 3064, proposes the establishment of a multi-faceted approach to oral health care through the creation of an expert oral health working group to assess existing federal oral health programs and recommend improvements.

"Dental disease presents a very serious problem for our children, -- particularly those from lower-income families," stated AGD President, Vincent Mayher, DMD, MAGD. "This working group should look closely at all federal oral health care programs and make recommendations for improvement to ensure that no child is without dental care.

"The working group would also develop programs to improve the oral health of and prevent dental disease in children, Medicaid-eligible adults, and other vulnerable populations who are among those Americans at highest risk of dental disease. "Considering that the National Institutes of Health found that dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease among children in the United States, preventative measures stopping dental disease before it worsens are essential to the future well-being of our nation's children," asserted Myron Bromberg, DDS, Chairman of the AGD Legislative and Governmental Affairs Council.

The AGD asks all Senators to co-sponsor this important legislation and help move it expeditiously through the legislative process. "We will be issuing an action alert this week to all our members urging them to start sending letters to their Senators asking them to support this measure," advised Janet Kopenhaver, AGD's Washington Lobbyist. "Co-sponsorship of the bill will be one component of the AGD Scorecard of the 110th Congress to be issued at this session's adjournment," she added.
