Prep for Allied Dental Site Visit
The Commission has established a seven-year site visit cycle for accreditation reviews of dental assisting, dental hygiene, dental laboratory technology, and dental therapy education programs. The purpose of the site visit evaluation is to obtain in-depth information concerning all administrative and educational aspects of the program. A team of Commission-appointed peers assesses a program's compliance with the Accreditation Standards and with its own stated goals and objectives. Information provided in the comprehensive self-study document completed by the institution is confirmed, documentation is reviewed, interviews are conducted and the program is observed by the visiting committee. Information related to the site visit is viewed as confidential.
A Site Visit Orientation presentation is provided as a resource in preparation for an upcoming site visit.
