AADB publishes 24th Composite

March 18, 2013

The American Association of Dental Boards has published the 24th edition of the Composite, a reference detailing the structure, licensing and disciplinary activities of all state dental boards.

Composite was made possible through a contribution from the American Dental Education Association. Completed in 2012, the publication contains 40 charts describing:

• state dental board structure and operations;

• licensee population within each state;

• 2011 board disciplinary activity and complaint statistics;

• state licensing requirements.

The result of information obtained directly from state dental boards, the charts include general requirements, the use of clinical and didactic examinations, continuing education renewal requirements and the methods used to conduct application background checks. Also included are licensure and disciplinary board contacts, and charts on specialty licensure and nonaccredited graduates.

The Composite is copyrighted by the AADB and may not be reproduced without permission. Copies are available at; cost is $50 for AADB members and $75 for nonmembers (shipping costs included).

Orders can also be prepaid with check or money order payable to the American Association of Dental Boards. Send orders to Composite, American Association of Dental Boards, 211 E. Chicago Ave., Ste. 760, Chicago, IL 60611.
