Pew flying AZ Legislators to Minnesota!


Members of the Arizona State Legislature have been invited by the University of Minnesota to fly on an all-expense paid trip to Minnesota for a two day long program to learn "how Minnesota has utilized dental therapists to increase access to care and expand dental practices in the state." The clear intent of this visit is to show these legislators only the isolated facts and situations supporting Pew’s ill-conceived idea that “what happens in Minnesota is right for Arizona.”

Although the invitation has been extended by the University of Minnesota, we have learned that all costs are being underwritten by the Pew Charitable Trusts.

It’s disappointing that an organization such as Pew should spend so much time and effort trying to “spin” a bad idea, especially in Arizona, where the State Legislature, at the urging of AzDA, has done so much in the last decade to meaningfully increase access to care, especially for the most vulnerable of our citizens.

AzDA members are encouraged to call your State Representatives and Senators and tell them they don’t need to fly across the country to know what’s needed to improve access to dental care in Arizona.  

Just come visit our offices right in your own District.  

No planes, hotel rooms or fancy meals to pay for…just a chance to learn more about the economics of dental practices from the people who care for Arizona adults and kids every single day.
