Leadership

Board of Directors

The specific objectives of the College are:
A. Promote advancement and recognition of high standards in the art and science of veterinary dentistry.

B. Establish and manage a veterinary dental specialist certifying agency for veterinarians who are able to show that they excel in the practice of veterinary dentistry by successfully completing a training program approved by the College and passing an examination conducted by the College. The College will not, of itself, educate veterinarians, but will recognize training programs and courses offered by veterinarians or other organizations that will provide the education and training necessary for veterinarians to achieve certification by the College.

C. Promote recognition of the advanced skills provided by College-certified veterinarians to other veterinarians and to the general public.

D. Encourage investigations and contributions to the literature in the field of veterinary dentistry.

E. Cooperate with other organizations working to improve practice standards and methods in the field of veterinary dentistry and veterinary medicine in general.
