DQAC Public Member Vacancy

The Department of Health, Health Systems Quality Assurance (HSQA), is accepting applications through Aug. 5 to fill one public member vacancy on the Dental Quality Assurance Commission (DQAC).

The Department of Health, Health Systems Quality Assurance (HSQA), is accepting applications to fill vacancies on the Dental Quality Assurance Commission (commission). This recruitment will be used to fill one public member vacancy.

HSQA is looking for public-spirited people willing to study the issues and to make decisions in the public’s best interest. Health profession boards, commissions, and committees operate under legislative mandate to:

  • Protect the health and safety of the public, and
  • Promote the welfare of the state by regulating the competency and quality of health care providers under their authority.

The Governor’s Office and the Department of Health seek diversity in board and commission members. They recognize the value variety brings in understanding and serving the people of Washington State. They need candidates with diverse backgrounds and those who provide geographic representation throughout the state.

To qualify for the public member position on the commission, an individual may not be a member of any other health care licensing board or commission, or have a fiduciary obligation to a facility rendering health services regulated by the commission, or have a material or financial interest in the rendering of health services regulated by the commission. Public members may not hold a dental related health care credential. Members must be citizens of the United States and residents of Washington State.

If you are interested in applying for an appointment to the commission, please complete the application online here. On the application, please select that you are applying for the Dental Quality Assurance Commission. Applications, along with a current resume must be submitted by August 5, 2022.

Additional information about the commission is available on the DOH web page.
