William Fay, DDS, received his doctor of dental science degree from the University of Detroit School of Dentistry. When he is not overseeing activities at multiple offices in California’s East Bay, William Fay, DDS, maintains memberships with industry groups like the American Dental Association.

The American Dental Association (ADA) regularly engages in a variety of advocacy activities. As one of the nation’s leading authorities on the matter, the organization closely monitors all public policies that influence dental and oral health. ADA representatives often appear in Washington, DC, to lobby before Congress and other administrative bodies. The ADA is currently involved in multiple advocacy issues, including the use of tobacco and its adverse effects on oral health.

The organization’s stance on tobacco has been drawn from a wealth of scientific data regarding tobacco products and the development of oral cancer, pharyngeal cancer, and similar diseases. Recent advocacy efforts in this area have generated a new wave of tobacco products in response, such as electronic cigarettes, dissolvable tobacco, and tobacco gels, among others. ADA actions have ranged from a call to strengthen FDA strictures under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, to expanding coverage of professionally managed tobacco-cessation programs.
