The American Association of Dental Boards (AADB) has launched the Assessment Services Program (ASP), a comprehensive program of review services designed to assist dental boards throughout the discipline process. One of the major components of the program is the Expert Review Assessment (ERA). Please note that this program is for dental boards only.
The Expert Review Assessment program is a service provided to dental boards in need of an independent expert witness in disciplinary case review. The AADB will refer the state dental board to a specially trained expert assessor who will review the practitioner’s patient care and treatment and/or the practitioner’s conduct and offer an opinion regarding whether or not that care, treatment and conduct met applicable standards.
Those boards interested in participating in ERA will fill out a request form accompanied by a nonrefundable $1,500.00 fee sent directly to the American Association of Dental Boards. The form will be reviewed and documents needed for the assessment will be specified. It will be the state dental board’s responsibility to supply the AADB with all necessary documents which will be forwarded to the expert assessor.
