Commission on Dental Accreditation
The Commission on Dental Accreditation will review complaints that relate to a program's compliance with accreditation standards. The commission is interested in the sustained quality and continued improvement of dental and dental-related education programs but does not intervene on behalf of individuals or act as a court of appeal for treatment received by patients or individuals in matters of admission, appointment, promotion or dismissal of faculty, staff or students.
A copy of the appropriate accreditation standards and/or commission's policy and procedure for submission of complaints may be obtained by contacting the commission.
