Legislation We're Watching

The Coalition for Affordable Dental Access opposes any legislation that adds unnecessary barriers to accessible dental care.

AB 1998 (Low) – Defeated

The Coalition for Affordable Dental Access opposed AB 1998 because the bill would have suppressed healthcare innovation at a time when expanding access to alternative methods of care should be a priority. AB 1998 sought to create unnecessary barriers to care for people who are currently priced out of getting the care and treatments they desire.

  • AB 1998 Increased patient Costs
  • AB 1998 Exposed patients to dangerous radiographs
  • AB 1998 Undermined the clinical judgment of California licensed dentists
  • AB 1998 Created barriers that would disproportionally hurt communities of color.
