Call for 2021 EC Applications
The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) is accepting applications for the subcommittees of the 2021 Examination Committee (EC). The EC is comprised of three (3) subcommittees:
- Qualifying Examination Subcommittee (QES)
- Oral Clinical Examination Subcommittee (OCES)
- Renewal of Certification Process Subcommittee (ROCPS)
The EC was formed to ensure that our examinations test the in-depth knowledge of the specialty of dentistry and continuously validates their knowledge, skills, and experience for delivering quality patient outcomes. Each group is dedicated to the annual development and advancement of the certification and/or maintenance process.
Applications for each subcommittee are to be submitted no later than August 1, 2020. The applications will be collated for review by the subcommittee leadership and ABPD Board of Directors.
Eligible candidates must meet the following minimal qualifications at the time of application:
- A Diplomate in good standing.
- An active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD).
- Must be at least five years since Board certification.
- Must be actively involved in direct patient care or clinical teaching of pediatric dentistry on a weekly basis.
Subcommittee members serve a 1-year term and may serve on only one (1) of the three (3) subcommittees. A member’s term may be extended annually to a maximum of five (5) years. Reappointments are based on performance and the needs of each subcommittee. After a Diplomate has served a five-year term and wish to serve again, they can reapply following a 12-month hiatus.
Subcommittee members must participate in the Examination Committee Workshop scheduled January 28-30, 2021. Subcommittee Members will also be required to participate in the Renewal of Certification Process if not already enrolled.
Subcommittee members are eligible to serve as examiners for the Oral Clinical Examination, if needed and invited.
