Advocacy Update: Coalition for Modernizing Dental Licensure
The ACP is a member of the Coalition for Modernizing Dental Licensure (CMDL) which focuses on outreach to state dental boards, encouraging them to amend licensure requirements to eliminate the single-encounter, procedure-based examinations.
Founded by the ADA, the American Student Dental Association, and the American Dental Educators Association, the CMDL is engaged in active outreach to dental schools and specialty groups. The CMDL also encourages increased licensure portability and works at the national level to establish a common core of credentials that can serves as a basis for licensure compacts among states. We look forward to sharing further developments on these fronts as the ACP continues to advocate for your interests as a specialist.
