Please contact YOUR state Representative in support of HB 994. Friends, family and colleagues are encouraged to either email or call. When calling all that needs to be said is “Please ask Representative _________ to vote in support of HB 994” or in the subject line of an email, the same. This Bill enables the PHDHP to provide dental screenings in school districts who do not employ a Certified School District Dental Hygienist (CSDH). Your legislator can be located by accessing:
