    Oral Medicine Eligibility

    The Commission on Dental Accreditation (CoDA) does not recognize Oral Medicine as a dental specialty in the United States of America. Therefore, there are no Oral Medicine programs in the United States of America that would be recognized as accredited dental specialty training programs under the reciprocal agreement between CDAC and CoDA.
