Policy on Third Party Comments
The Commission on Dental Accreditation will review Third Party comments and/or 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 treatment received by patients or individuals in matters of admission,
appointment, promotion or dismissal of faculty, staff or students.
The Commission on Dental Accreditation must receive comments at least sixty days prior
to the October 22-23, 2019 site visit. Comments must be signed. However, the signatures
will be removed from comments prior to them being forwarded to the program. Comments
must pertain only to the standards for the particular program 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 60611-2678 or by calling 1-800-621-8099 extension
