Our profession needs state lawmakers who understand dentistry and how policies and legislation may affect our profession and patients. The Minnesota Dental Political Action Committee (MINDENPAC) is a nonpartisan PAC that exists to advance the dental profession, enhance patient access and fight unwarranted regulations in Minnesota. Since its inception nearly three decades ago, the Minnesota Dental PAC has worked not only to ensure the profession speaks as a unified voice, but also to provide us with an influential political presence at the state Capitol.

How the PAC Works
