EMAIL TEMPLATE EXAMPLE:

Dear Senator______________,

My name is________________ and I am writing to you as a member of the New Jersey Dental Assistants Association. I am respectfully requesting your support of Bill S2464 which would add a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) to the New Jersey State Board of Dentistry (NJSBOD). Although the NJSBOD regulates the RDA credential, currently there is no dental assistant representation on the Board. With the increase in recent infection control breaches, it is important to have representation from the profession to assure public safety.

Sincerely,
