Accreditation

In February 2010, the VCU School of Dentistry received a perfect accreditation review by the Commission on Dental Accreditation for the following programs:

  • Dental hygiene (B.S.)
  • Dentistry (D.D.S.)
  • Advanced Dental Education programs (including endodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics and Advanced Education in General Dentistry)

Complaints to the Commission on Dental Accreditation - The Commission on Dental Accreditation 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 or dismissal of faculty, staff or students.

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.

The VCU School of Dentistry is also an American Dental Association  Continuing Education Recognition Program recognized provider.

ADA CERP is a service of the ADA to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry.
