American Dental Association Policy

Each program accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation must develop and implement a procedure to inform students and other interested parties of the mailing address and telephone number of the commission on Dental Accreditation. The Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association (ADA) will review complaints that relate to a program's compliance with the 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 individuals in matters of admission, appointment, promotion of dismissal of faculty, staff or students.

Comments must pertain only to the standards or policies and procedures used in the Commission's accreditation process.

A copy of the appropriate accreditation standards and/or the Commission's policy and procedure for submission of complaints may be obtained by contacting the Commission at

211 East Chicago Avenue,
Chicago IL 60611
or by calling 1-800-621-8099 extension 4653.

A copy of the "Accreditation Standards" is also on reserve in the Colorado Northwestern Community College library.

Comments may be sent directly to the Commission or to the Colorado Northwestern Community College Dental Hygiene Department Chair.
