The goal of the Legislative Committee is to increase student awareness of legislation related to both dentistry and healthcare at large. We hope to create opportunities for students to get involved in advocacy and be the voice of student dentists here at UCLA.

Committee Goals


  • Raise awareness of advocacy and current healthcare events through lunch and learns and social media posts.
  • Have more UCLA SOD participation at ASDA National Lobby Day 2018.
  • Encourage UCLA SOD students to join ADPAC.
  • This year we are going to try to have a more prominent social media presence to increase legislative awareness here at UCLA SOD.
