ADHA's 90th Annual

ADHA Urges CODA to Implement Dual-Track Accreditation

CODA’s mission is to serve the oral health care needs of the public through the development and administration of dental health standards.  Unfortunately, the proposed accreditation does not meet these criteria.

ADHA urges the Commission to develop dental therapy standards for a dental hygiene-based dental therapy track. We urge the Commissioners to fully develop accreditation standards that reflect the progress and current practice.

ADHA is encouraging members to send written comments to the Commission, which will be heard during open hearings held throughout the year. Comments are due December 1, 2013, and can be sent via email or mail:

  • Email - Comments can be directed to Dr. Sherin Tooks at tookss@ada.org
  • Mail – Comments can be mailed to the following address:

ATTN: Dr. Sherin Tooks, 19th Floor
Director, Commission on Dental Accreditation
211 East Chicago Avenue
Chicago, IL 60611
