Mission and Goals

The mission of the Coalition to Modernize Dental Licensure is to ensure patient safety, increase access to care, and promote professional mobility by modernizing the dental licensure process.

The Coalition for Modernizing Dental Licensure has two ambitious yet achievable strategic goals:

  1. Achieve adoption of valid and reliable examinations for dental licensure that do not include the use of single encounter, procedure-based examinations on patients. 
  2. Achieve portability of dental licensure among all licensing jurisdictions in the United States for the benefit of the public and the profession.
