The Examination Committee (EC) was formed to ensure that our examinations test the Candidates' in-depth knowledge of the specialty of pediatric dentistry. 

Committee member assignments are based on the needs of the Examination Committee. Depending on the committee assignment, members develop items for the Qualifying Examination or the Renewal of Certification Examination, assist in the development of vignettes for the Oral Clinical Examination or the Continuous Quality Improvement modules for the Renewal of Certification Process.

A Diplomate shall meet the following criteria to be considered for a Committee member appointment of the Examination Committee (EC):

Appointments are a 1-year term and may be extended annually to a maximum of five years. Reappointments are based on performance and the needs of the Examination Committee.  After a Diplomate has served a five-year term on the Examination Committee and wish to serve again, they can reapply following a 12-month hiatus.

Committee members must participate in the Examination Committee Workshop scheduled January 30-February 1, 2020.  Committee members will also be required to participate in the Renewal of Certification Process, if not already enrolled.
