Effective December 2020, David Krawcheck, BA, MPH, was appointed the UNC Adams School of Dentistry’s director of clinical compliance.
“Having grown up in New York and spending nearly my entire adult life in Arizona, I missed the color green and inches of rain referring to volume, not the spacing between drops,” said Krawcheck. “When I found this position at UNC-Chapel Hill Adams School of Dentistry, I felt excited that I could continue working within a similar role and be able to experience nature.”
“Coming from a school that was largely online, I intend to automate and streamline as many processes as possible, with input and suggestions from those that would be impacted by these changes, to ensure information is more readily available and easily shared. I look forward to collaborating with everyone and hearing the many ideas that I’m sure most people have.”
Krawcheck will oversee clinical compliance across all Carolina Dentistry operations for students, residents, an employees. His areas of responsibility will include infection control, policies and procedures related to CDC, FDA, OSHA and standards of care, credentialing management, as well as keeping the school community informed and educated on new protocols.
“David brings a wealth of experience in clinical compliance within a dental setting to our operations,” said Director of Clinical Operations, Karla-Marie Santiago, MBA. “His background in a dental education program, infection control and in optimizing clinical compliance in an online setting makes him a great asset to the school. We are excited to welcome him to Carolina Dentistry and the Adams School of Dentistry team.”
Krawcheck has more than 10 years of experience in public health and higher education as a project manager. Prior to joining the Adams School of Dentistry’s staff, he served as the operations and compliance manager for a small dental program in Arizona for six years, while also serving as a part-time adjunct instructor. There he directed the compliance and strategic direction of all safety initiatives and programs, including developing policies and manuals, and training employees and students.
