Happy Spring to all!  Dr. Teague has just returned from Washington, DC, where he visited with North Carolina's legislators at the American Dental Association's annual Lobby Day.  Late last year, Dr. Teague also represented North Carolina at the ADA's annual Lobbyists Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. The ADA has strongly advocated for the dental profession since its inception in 1859.  Our organization, representing almost 160,000 dentists, is constantly educating legislators regarding oral health care and all aspects of dentistry, with the best interests of the patient always the centerpiece of proposed legislation.  The legislation we discussed this year with our legislators were:

The Action for Dental Health Act (S. 2891, H.R. 3843) which deals with dental workforce and access to care issues, and was introduced by NC Senator Ted Budd.

The Resident Education Deferred Interest Act (S.704, H.R. 1202) which allows medical and dental residents in graduate programs, such as oral surgery or endodontics, to defer the payments on their federal loans until they have completed their residency.

The Dental and Optometric Care Access Act (S.1424, H.R. 1385) which would prohibit dental and vision insurance plans from setting fees for services they do not cover.  

As we all know, the world of medicine looks very differently from dentistry right now.  This did not happen by chance.  The ADA and many private practice dental professionals, like Dr. Teague, continue to advocate on behalf of our patients and the dental profession.  More information can be found at www.ada.org/advocacy.     



Dr. Teague was recently featured in the Annual Report for Benco Dental Company. Benco Dental is one of the country's leading suppliers of dental products and equipment to the dental profession. Dr. Teague was one of four dentists selected nationally and was recognized for his efforts in "Leadership and Advocacy" relative to the COVID-19 vaccination of the dental profession. A portion of the article reads, "Nobody in the North Carolina dental community was surprised that Dr. Teague emerged as one of the strongest and most relentless voices advocating to prioritize dental professionals for vaccinations. A former president of the North Carolina Dental Society, he has a lifetime of awards and service demonstrating his dedication."
