The AAPD Political Action Committee (PAC) was formed in 2001 for the express purpose of providing financial support to candidates for federal office who have demonstrated a serious commitment to improving oral health for children.

The AAPD PAC uses an objective ranking process to evaluate potential recipients of AAPD PAC support to assure that only those candidates who have shown measurably demonstrated actions to improve children's oral health through the federal legislative or regulatory process will receive support.

Please note that under federal election law, AAPD PAC contributions may be received only from AAPD members and staff.

Please contact Margaret Bjerklie at with any questions regarding AAPD PAC.
