About us

The Executive, a small group of eight elected members, provides clinical leadership to the oral health sector and advice to the Ministry of Health on oral health issues, with a particular emphasis on publicly-funded oral health services. Through the Chair, the Executive could also provide independent advice on oral health matters directly to the Minister of Health if necessary.
