Commisson on Dental Accreditation Votes To Implement Dental Therapy Education Standards

In June, we shared the news that Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) adopted education standards for Dental Therapy. We told you to stay tuned to see if CODA voted to implement education standards for Dental Therapy programs. The wait is over. Last Friday, CODA voted to implement education standards for Dental Therapy programs. David Jordan, Dental Access Project Director at Community Catalyst, who works with us and 5 other states to address the dental access crisis by allowing mid-level providers known as dental therapists to practice in each state, said “The vote means dentistry's accrediting body fully recognizes dental therapy as a profession and will move forward with accrediting dental therapy training institutions - possibly within the next year.”

Happy 50th Anniversary Medicare & Medicaid!
