Official Explanation:

ANSWER: B “the American Dental Association” is the subject of the introductory phrase “Seeking to decrease the incidence of tooth decay,” so it should come immediately after that phrase; C, D, and E incorrectly place other phrases between the introductory phrase and its subject. D and E also unnecessarily use passive verb constructions. The construction “is to spend . . . promoting” in A is less idiomatic and forceful than “will spend . . . to promote” in B, because, in general, use of a declarative active verb is more forceful than use of a “to be” verb, and infinitives are generally more forceful than gerunds. B is the best answer.
