preserving the dental profession.
DENPAC, the general purpose action committee of the Texas Dental Association, is a voluntary, non-profit, unincorporated group of dentists whose goal is to influence the nomination or election of state candidates who have demonstrated their concern for the preservation of dentistry as an independent profession, and for the dental health of the people of Texas.
State government plays a vital role in setting guidelines for how you run your practice on a daily basis. From taxation and regulation to scope of practice and licensing, the Texas legislature makes decisions affecting every aspect of the dental profession.
DENPAC exists to help safeguard against counter-productive legislation and to ensure that the Texas Dental Association has a constant presence at our state capitol. When lawmakers address issues affecting the practice of dentistry in Texas, DENPAC is hard at work making your voice heard.
Along with the practice of dentistry, DENPAC promotes and protects the dental health of the people of Texas. The Texas Dental Association advocates for the funding of charitable programs such as CHIP and MEDICAID and strives to keep these programs available to patients in need.
It is essential that we help elect responsive candidates who understand the important role dental health plays in our communities. Working together we can protect our patients and ensure that dentistry is practiced the way we know it should be.
