Take a stand. Make your interests heard. Contribute to MODentPAC.

Together we can have an impact on political decisions that affect dentistry. We've made it easier than ever to give to PAC with both an online giving form and a form that may be printed and mailed. You can give a one-time contribution or sign up for monthly debits. The most common gift to the PAC is $100 remitted with dues. If contributors would give $10/month, we would double the size of the PAC without creating a large monthly burden for an individual.

Hosting a Fundraiser

There is no more effective way to cement a good relationship with a lawmaker or potential lawmaker than to participate in his or her election or re-election campaign by hosting a Fundraiser. Fundraising events help the candidate raise money and give them the chance to meet and talk with voters. In short, they appreciate and remember those who have helped them in their efforts. The MDA will be glad to help as you plan your fundraiser; just give us a call.
