AAO President DeWayne McCamish recently visited Washington, D.C. to promote the AAO’s RAISE Act and meet with lawmakers whose actions impact the practice of orthodontics.

In addition to gaining three new co-sponsors for the RAISE Act, (Representative Bill Flores (TX), Representative Brett Guthrie (KY), Senator Roy Blunt (MO)) Dr. McCamish has also been discussing issues critical to orthodontists, including the need for:

  • A permanent repeal of the Medical Device Tax
  • Tax reforms benefitting small businesses
  • Decreasing the debt load for orthodontic residents
