The ADA is looking for nominations to the Commission on Dental Accreditation board of commissioners.
Qualifying public nominees are expected to have an interest in or knowledge of health professions related to education and accreditation matters but must not have a formal or informal connection to dentistry.
Additionally, nominees must not be dentists, allied dental personnel, or employed by or a consultant to a dental education program.
The nominee must also not be a member or employee of any professional/trade association, licensing/regulatory agency, or membership organization affiliated with or associated with CODA, dental education, or dentistry.
CODA’s mission is to serve the public and dental professions by developing and implementing accreditation standards that promote and monitor the continuous quality and improvement of dental education programs.
The board meets twice annually to set accreditation standards and policies and take accreditation actions on dental, allied dental, and advanced dental education programs.
Nominees should submit a current resume and completed application form by May 1.
The ADA Board of Trustees will review the nominations and recommend candidates to CODA for consideration and action. The CODA board of commissioners will consider public/consumer representative nominees at its August meeting.
