Positions Available 

Chief Executive Officer
Chicago, IL

The Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) was founded in 1980 and is the national certification board for dental assistants. DANB, a nonprofit organization, is a member of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence. As an independent but related affiliate of DANB, the Dental Advancement through Learning and Education Foundation (DALE Foundation) is a nonprofit organization established by DANB's Board of Directors that focuses on research and education in dental assisting.

Since DANB’s founding 41 years ago, the organization has grown steadily and has built an enviable reputation for itself in the credentialing and testing worlds. DANB and the DALE Foundation have recently finalized their joint, three-year strategic plan. Together, the organizations have a staff of more than 40 employees and an operating budget of approximately $8 million.

We seek a proven leader who has a contagious interest in health and the impact that improved oral health can have on quality of life. Career experience and knowledge of oral health delivery, public health issues and health systems will be highly valued but is not a prerequisite.  Experience in an executive leadership position with dual organizations is highly valued. Strategic astuteness, critical thinking skills, dynamic personal presence, natural optimism, humility, good listening skills, and a sense of humor are the more important personal attributes we seek.
