Attention students, clinic patients and interested parties:
The Commission on Dental Accreditation will review complaints that relate to CFCC’s compliance with the accreditation standards and policies. 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 or dismissal of faculty, staff or students.
A copy of the appropriate accreditation standards and/or the Commission’s policy and procedures for submission of complaints may by obtained by contacting the Commission, see address below.
The Commission on Dental Accreditation’s site visitors will be on campus to review the dental assisting and dental hygiene programs on March 24, 25, and 26, 2015. The programs are required to inform you of our pending accreditation visit and the opportunity for you to make your concerns available to the Commission. Your comments need to be addressed to the Commission before January 23, 2015.
The United States Department of Education (USDE) procedures now also required accrediting agencies to provide an opportunity for third-party comment with respect to institutions or programs scheduled for review.
Who can submit comments: Third-party comments relative to the Commission’s accredited programs may include comments submitted by interested parties such as faculty, students, staff, program administrators, Commission consultants, specialty and dental-related organizations, patients and/or consumers.
Types of comments considered: For those individuals who are interested in submitting comments, a copy of the appropriate accreditation standards and/or the Commission’s policy and procedures 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.
