By | December 13, 2018

You’ve heard that the ADA and ADPAC advocate for the dental profession in Washington, D.C., but what does that actually mean?

Tooth Talk, a new podcast from ADPAC and the ADA’s D.C. office, takes you behind the scenes on Capitol Hill with hosts Sarah Milligan (director of political affairs at ADPAC) and Peter Aiello (manager of grassroots education & digital advocacy at ADPAC). Together they’ll help you brush up on the latest dental news from D.C. and around the country through interviews with dentists, lobbyists and others working to promote the profession.

Season one episode topics include:

  • An overview of the ADA and ADPAC’s advocacy efforts with Mike Graham, ADA vice president of government and public affairs
  • Understanding the regulatory and legislative frameworks that impact dentistry
  • An interview with two of the ADA’s congressional lobbyists, who explain how lobbying works on Capitol Hill and how it can impact the future of oral health

Be sure to catch the last episode of the season on Dec. 24 and the season two premier on Jan. 14! You can listen to Tooth Talk on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher. Visit to learn more.
