Dean Williams heads ADA Commission on Dental Accreditation

Dr. John N. Williams Jr.

Indiana University School of Dentistry Dean John N. Williams Jr. will draw upon his extensive experience leading accreditation site visits at dental schools throughout the country to pursue his newest challenge: heading the national dental accrediting body itself.

The Commission on Dental Accreditation, an agency of the American Dental Association, approved Williams as chair of the commission during the association’s annual session this month in New Orleans. Having recently completed three years of his four-year appointment as a commission board member, he will preside over the 30-member commission for the final year of his term.
