The commission adopted a resolution on March 11 after an application was received from the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists.
The commission was established by the ADA House of Delegates in 2017 to oversee the decision-making process for recognizing dental specialties, according to the ADA.
The first nine specialties were recognized in May 2018:
- Dental public health
- Oral and maxillofacial pathology
- Oral and maxillofacial radiology
- Oral and maxillofacial surgery
- Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics
- Pediatric dentistry
