We are very disappointed that the bill to expand dental access and health equity through statewide dental therapy did not get a public hearing in the 2022 Legislative Session.

But, we are proud of the work we’ve done together with community members and organizational partners to speak up on this issue!

  • Over 500 e-mails to lawmakers
  • Open House for community members and dental professionals

Washington state lawmakers now have all they need to combat the Washington State Dental Association’s misinformation and fear tactics and finally do what is right for their constituents – authorize Dental Therapy statewide.

Big thank you to our many partners! Our advocacy for health equity does not stop here!
