ADPAC is the ADA’s nonpartisan political action committee (PAC) that works to elect and support pro-dental candidates.

For more than 50 years, ADPAC, the American Dental Political Action Committee, has been the bipartisan voice of thousands of dentists who care deeply about their patients and their profession. We educate dentists about the importance of political action and help elect congressional candidates who support dentistry. By supporting ADPAC, you keep the profession of dentistry strong and its principles uncompromised.

Helping elect leaders who care about oral health

Through the financial contributions of member dentists, ADPAC supports congressional candidates who understand the importance of dentistry and its contribution to overall health. Regardless of party affiliation, ADPAC supports candidates who will advocate for dentists and patients. We also work with dentists who seek public office at local, state and national levels.

Welcome from the ADPAC Chair

On behalf of the American Dental Political Action Committee (ADPAC), I am pleased to welcome you to the ADPAC homepage.

ADPAC is a bipartisan PAC that truly believes in the old adage “We Help Those Who Help Us”; regardless of party affiliation.

Your PAC gives dentists a voice in the public policy arena on behalf of your practice, your patients and your profession. It is our most powerful resource in making a difference in Washington.

Your ADPAC Board is committed to providing complete transparency to our members regarding PAC financial information, activities and accomplishments.

This website shows the many different aspects of ADPAC and why it is important for you to become a contributing member. The ADPAC Board needs your commitment in order for us to achieve our goal of becoming the largest healthcare PAC in the U.S.

ADPAC gives dentists “One Voice United” in Washington, D.C. Thank you for your continued support, allowing us to continue promoting growth and advancing the future of dentistry.


Dr. Hal Fair

ADPAC Chairman

Every single dollar raised goes directly to carefully chosen campaigns that maximize our reach (no overhead or administration costs).

With so many new faces in Congress and different legislators in key leadership positions, it will be especially important that ADPAC continue to build relationships with the offices of the many healthcare policy stakeholders. We hope you are able to contribute today!
