Dental Accreditation Principles

Following the adoption of the ISDR accreditation "standards" and competencies for dentists by the ISDR general assembly in May 2016, the general assembly requested the ISDR accreditation working group to further consult on the ISDR international dentist accreditation principles and dentist competencies, the endorsement process and implementation. The general assembly asked the working group to report back to the general assembly in 2017 and provide options for implementation.


Consultation on the proposed Dental Accreditation Principles is now open. The purpose of this consultation is to consult on the:

  • ISDR international dentist accreditation principles and dentist competencies
  • ISDR endorsement process and implementation.
