Dental Assisting Program
The dental assisting program of Calhoun Community College is seeking continuing accreditation through the American Dental Association's Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA). For the past year, the dental assisting program has been engaged in a thorough self-study process designed to maintain and improve the quality of the educational program. A team of CODA site reviewers is scheduled for a visit to meet with College administration, program faculty, students, and community partners June 26-27th, 2014.
Faculty, students, program graduates, community partners, dental organizations, patients, and/or consumers are encouraged to submit comments about the CCC dental assisting program to the Commission. All comments must be received by CODA at least sixty (60) days in advance of the site visit and all comments must be signed to be considered.
Signatures are removed from comments prior to forwarding them to the dental assisting program.
Comments must pertain only to the accreditation standards for the dental assisting program or policies and procedures used in the Commission's accreditation process. The Commission does not intervene on behalf of individuals or act as a court of appeals for individuals in matters of admission, appointment, promotions or dismissal of faculty, staff, or students. Comments are screened by Commission staff for relevancy. If comments are received that are not relevant to these issues, the individual will be notified that the comment is not related to accreditation and, where appropriate, referred to the appropriate agency.
A copy of the current dental assisting accreditation standards and/or the Commission's policy on third-party comment may be obtained by contacting:
Commission on Dental Accreditation 211 East Chicago Avenue
Chicago, Illinois 60611
or by calling 1-800-621-8099, extension 4653
Deadline for comments: April 25, 2014
