The National Commission has two Review Committees: (1) the Review Committee on Specialty Recognition and (2) the Review Committee on Specialty Certifying Board Recognition. Both are responsible for review of recognition and policy matters related to recognition of the dental specialties, the recognized dental specialty sponsoring organizations and the recognized dental specialty certifying boards.
The Review Committees gather, review and analyze information to formulate recommendations to the Board of Commissioners to grant or deny specialty recognition. Because the Board of Commissioners is the decision making body of the National Commission, any recommendation(s) made by a Review Committee is considered confidential until the Board of Commissioners takes final action.
The National Commission's Review Committees do not act in the same capacity as CDEL’s Committee G.
