The Dublin Dental Hospital Board consists of a Chairperson and 13 Board members appointed by the Minister, as provided for in the Dublin Dental Hospital (Establishment) Order 1963.
I have recently appointed a new Board for a four year term beginning 02 August 2019. Names of Board members are published on the websites of my Department and of the Dublin Dental Hospital.
I re-appointed the Chairperson of the Board with the approval of Government and I re-appointed six members to the new Board for a second term in line with Guidelines on Appointments to State Boards (Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, 2014). Five of these members had already gone through a previous selection process organised with the Public Appointments Service (PAS) and one was a previous employee of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and had been nominated by that Body. In line with the statutory provision, I appointed three Board members on the nomination of Trinity College and one member on the nomination of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. The three remaining positions were filled through a process conducted by the PAS which advertised the vacancies on 29 March 2019. Applications were sought from candidates with expertise in (i) Risk Management, (ii) Human Resources and iii) Research.
