VDA Bill HB1682 advances!

Many thanks to the nearly 100 VDA dentists and VCU dental students who attended the VDA Day on the Hill on January 18!  Largely due to the legislative contacts made by members during that day and prior, HB1682 passed the full House on January 21.  It is now moving forward to be reviewed by the Senate.
