ADA seeks participants for SNODENT review

June 18, 2019 The American Dental Association is seeking qualified individuals to join
an ADA canvass committee to consider approval of the 2019 revision of
the Systemized Nomenclature of Dentistry.

ANSI/ADA Standard No. 2000.2 for SNODENT was approved by the American
National Standards Institute as an American National Standard in 2018,
and it is revised annually. SNODENT provides a standardized oral health
terminology designed for use with electronic health records to enable
consistent retrieval, transmission and analysis of data across health
care systems.

The ADA SNODENT Canvass Committee is a volunteer group that is
administered by the ADA Department of Standards to review, comment and
vote on whether revisions of SNODENT should be forwarded to the
institute for approval.

Proposed revisions were prepared by the SNODENT Maintenance Committee, a
group of experts representing all dental specialty groups, as well as
academic, insurance and government organizations.

Participation in the SNODENT Canvass Committee is free and open to all
interested parties. All canvass activities will be conducted
electronically through the ADA's collaborative website for standards
development; no in-person meetings are planned.

To learn more or join the committee, contact Paul Bralower at
1-800-621-8099, ext. 4129, or

The ADA is accredited by the institute as a standards-developing
organization that adheres to a voluntary consensus process that is
transparent and open to all interested parties and maintains a balance
of interests.
