Meet our Partners and learn how you can join our mission to modernize dental licensure.

Help Modernize Dental Licensure

Our Coalition welcomes organizations, agencies and education programs that support dental licensure reform. There is no cost to take part in this multi-year effort. Your organization can join as a Partner, giving you the opportunity to:

  • Appoint one Coalition representative, who will be eligible to serve as one of two at-large representatives on the Coalition’s Executive Committee
  • Attend the Coalition’s annual meeting
  • Gain access to the full range of the Coalition’s tools and resources
  • Share your organization’s news and achievements in support of licensure reform, enriching the conversation that accelerates our work

Partners actively participate in national, state and local efforts to advance the Coalition’s goals and lend their names to reform efforts and may participate in Coalition activities as appropriate.
