Korean Institute of Dental Education and Evaluation(KIDEE) has been making constant efforts to improve dental education. To improve the quality of dental education and dental services in the Republic of Korea, we conduct research, development, and evaluation. Also, we study policies and systems related to dentistry.
Since 2007, KIDEE has continuously conducted dental education accreditations, site visits, hearings and symposiums to ensure that the evaluation of dental education can be stably established. Besides, we have signed MOUs with leading institutions such as the Accreditation Board of Veterinary Education in Korea(ABOVEK), Korean Society of Dental Education(KSDE), and The Advisory Board of Dental Accreditation in China to picture the future of dental education and develop related policies. Primarily, we consider it truly important to join the International Society of Dental Regulators(ISDR) in 2014 as a founding member. Thanks to the countless efforts of all members, we have become a solid institution both in the country and abroad. In 2015, KIDEE was designated as an institue, which has the authority for the accreditation of dental education by the Ministry of Education, and in 2016, we held the 1st East Asian Conference on Dental Education and Accreditation(EACDEA) meeting. Over time, we are achieving more and more meaningful accomplishments.
KIDEE aims to contribute to the development of dentistry based on accumulated experience and performance. To achieve this goal, we will continue to study the development of basic dental education, as well as the consistent and stable implementation of every related education and evaluation, including National Dental Licensing, lifelong education, and license management.
KIDEE will strive to become a strong and sound institution for the future of dentistry. We look forward to your active participation.
Lee Sang-Hoon, the Chairman of the Board, KIDEE
