Date:4/15/2008

rterly Census of Employment and Wages, and Occupational Employment Statistics Survey. The county employment data was converted into congressional districts, and then added together to determine the number of oral health care workers who are employed in each district. Nationwide, the dentistry profession employs over 786,000 workers. Total wages paid to dentistry professionals is in excess of $33 billion.

"We know that legislators and their staffs are very interested in the demographics of their constituency as they make voting and co-sponsorship decisions," said AGD's Washington Lobbyist Janet Kopenhaver. "These statistics and details on how many of their constituents are employed in the dentistry profession should be taken into consideration as legislators consider supporting and co-sponsoring the AGD legislative priorities for this year."
