ADA® Credentialing Service Powered by CAQH ProView®

Spend less time on paperwork by going digital with credentialing. It’s free, protected, and you choose the organizations that can access the information. This is available at no cost for all U.S. licensed dentists – regardless of ADA membership.

Why go digital for credentialing?

  1. It’s all in one place. It’s an easy way to access and update your dentist’s credentialing information in CAQH ProView®, a centralized and protected location for storing and updating professional data and documentation for all U.S. licensed dentists.
  2. Reduces repetitive paperwork. It helps to reduce repetitive paperwork by enabling the input of dentists data, document images, and professional information only once electronically. After the initial input, subsequent attestations can be done digitally, confirming with a few clicks of a button.
  3. The price is right. The ADA® credentialing service is available free of charge to all U.S. licensed dentists, ADA members, and non-members alike.
