Legislative Day


WDA Legislative Day takes place every odd-numbered year, when hundreds of Wisconsin dentists and Marquette University School of Dentistry students gather in Madison for a morning session focusing on the WDA’s legislative efforts and priorities. After lunch, they spend the afternoon at the Capitol, meeting with lawmakers and staff and advocating for issues important to dentistry.

Marquette Dental Students:

MUSoD D3 students will be joining us for the day. All students will be matched with a dentist "host" for the afternoon Capitol visits. Students are transported to and from Madison via bus; dentist hosts are not responsible for student transportation or fees. Dentist hosts and students will be assigned together at lunch tables, please state if you are a mentor with a protégé and provide the name(s)

Individual/Group Capitol Appointments:

The WDA will schedule meetings for Legislative Day attendees with appropriate lawmakers and staff in the Capitol. Dentists will receive their meeting schedule with their nametag the morning of Legislative Day. Most meetings will be set so that dentists are meeting with their local lawmakers, with students also in attendance.

If you’d like to schedule or have already scheduled a meeting with a specific lawmaker(s), please call 888-538-8932.
