The National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB) is pleased to announce that Dr. Marie Dagenais will be joining the NDEB as Director of Examinations and Credential Verification in August 2015. Dr. Mary Ann Wiseman, NDEB President, states “the NDEB is undergoing a period of rapid growth and change. Dr. Dagenais brings a breadth of knowledge and ability that is essential moving forward.”
Dr. Dagenais has been involved with the NDEB for many years, most recently as a member of the Examinations Committee and as Assistant Chief Examiner for the Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge. Dr. Dagenais’ involvement in organized dentistry extends beyond the NDEB to a number of other professional organizations including the Association of Canadian Faculties of Dentistry, of which she became President in 2005, the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada, and the Canadian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology. Dr. Dagenais holds a DMD from the Université de Montréal and a Diploma in Oral Radiology from the University of Toronto. She has been a professor at McGill University since 1988, and will continue to practice in Montreal.
“Marie and I have been colleagues for many years”, said Dr. Jack Gerrow, Executive Director and Registrar, “I believe she will bring integrity, innovation, objectivity, and collaboration to her new role. We look forward to having her join the NDEB.”
