Jim Stamas honored as 2014 Legislator of the Year by Michigan dentists

LANSING—Sen. Jim Stamas was named 2014 Legislator of the Year by the Michigan Dental Association (MDA) on Friday.

MDA President Dr. Martin Makowski presented the award to Stamas in recognition of his efforts to improve access to dental care in the state.

“It is an honor to receive this award from the Michigan Dental Association that does so much to help keep our residents healthy,” said Stamas, R-Midland. “The importance of getting Michigan families access to dental care is a top priority, and I appreciated working with the Michigan Dental Association team and my colleague Senator Peter MacGregor on getting mobile dentistry going here in Michigan.

“Most importantly, I want to thank our dentists across the state and country for everything they do to help protect our smiles and the health of our families.”
