Beacon Hill Day
Beacon Hill Day is a key part of the Society’s advocacy strategy, as dentists and dental students come together to meet with lawmakers and speak with one voice on behalf of the dental profession and patients. While the 2020 Beacon Hill Day was canceled due to COVID-19 closures and public health guidance, the MDS continues to pursue virtual advocacy opportunities.
The MDS looks forward to resuming Beacon Hill Day in 2021—save the date now for April 14, 2021!
