Why We Exist

DSI exists to advance dental technology for the betterment of patient care. Dental Standards Institute, Inc. (DSI) accomplishes this through creating Standards that align the dental industry, thereby removing bottlenecks that would otherwise slow down progress.

DSI is an ANSI Accredited Standard Development Organization (SDO). Technology has progressed at an alarming rate for our patients, yet dentistry has lagged behind. DSI seeks to address this and improve the experience of dental patients and team members.

Working with the broader partnership of regulatory boards, professional associations, and educational organizations, DSI promotes harmony in the Standards development process.

It is the intention of DSI to propose Standards in the regulation of dental practice which:

a. Reduce the barriers to dental technology adoption within the industry;

b. Establish fundamental definitions and terms; and

c. Elevates the quality and efficiency in delivering dental care
