Who Should Attend?
This important event will provide hygienists the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively advocate for legislative issues impacting dental hygienists. Any member interested in learning more about the legislative process, or would like to lobbying directly with their Legislator, this is the event for you!

Our message continues to be (1) that state healthcare policies should but are not prioritizing cost-effective prevention; and (2) that dental hygienists, as prevention specialists, comprise an available, educated workforce which can be better utilized to help California's healthcare needs. 


  • Learn about the legislative process
  • Advocate effectively for dental hygienists
  • Communicate the priority legislative issues facing dental hygienists
  • Collaborate with colleagues to create legislative solutions

Meet Your local Legislator!
We will be making our voices heard together, as one CDHA. You will be meeting your legislators  -- alongside fellow California RDHs and RDHAPs.

CDHA takes care of all logistics for Legislative Day. No need to worry about the legislative logistics or what to say!  You will be provided with a unified message and talking points. A mentoring session will take place in the morning and your appointments with legislators are set up in the afternoon.
