Affordable Care Act Appropriations 'Talking Points'

These talking points on the oral health provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) were designed for use in advocacy and public education activities directed at encouraging Congress to appropriate funds for the many important programs and initiatives in health reform. The oral health provisions in the ACA are necessary to effectively support the pediatric dental benefit and enhance existing oral health infrastructure. It is important for Congress to fully understand the implications of not funding many of the new initiatives authorized by the ACA, particularly those designed to enhance cost effective prevention based activities.

Please feel free to use these talking points when discussing the oral health provisions in ACA with your Representatives.
