What is ILHy-PAC?

Illinois Dental Hygienists’ Political Action Committee OR IL Hy-PAC is a voluntary, non-profit, unincorporated committee of individual dental hygienists and others and is not affiliated with any political party. The committee is an independent, autonomous organization and is not a branch or subsidiary of any national, state, or  other  political committee.

Join to Be Part of the Decision Makers!

Legislation and government regulations are affecting the scope and the future of the practice of dental hygiene. Important decisions are made concerning health care delivery and dental hygiene practice. We must be an active part of that decision-making process.

Voting isn’t enough, lobbying isn’t enough!!!

The synergy of hundreds of dental hygienists working together is what it takes for our collective voice to be heard when public officials are debating the future of dental hygiene.
