Invitation for Third Party Comments Regarding the NIDCR Dental Public Health Fellowship Program

​The NIDCR Dental Public Health Fellowship Program will be visited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) on November 3, 2015, in accordance with Commission’s policies for periodic evaluation of accredited programs.

The Commission is accepting comments regarding the program’s adherence to the Accreditation Standards for Advanced Specialty Education Programs in Dental Public Health. We invite communities of interest and the public (such as faculty, students, program administrators, specialty and dental-related organizations, and consumers) to provide their comments regarding the performance of this program directly to the Commission. The third-party comments will be used to assess the program’s qualifications for accreditation. In addition, the comments assist the program to assure that it complies with the accreditation standards for the discipline and required accreditation policies.

Comments submitted must pertain only to the Standards for Advanced Specialty Education Programs in Dental Public Health or policies and procedures used in the Commission’s accreditation process. Please note that only signed comments will be considered. For comments 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. All relevant comments will have signatures removed and will then be referred to the program at least 50 days prior to the site visit for review and response.  

A copy of the accreditation standards for specialty training programs in dental public health and/or the Commission's policy on third-party comments 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 accreditation standards are also available at the Commission’s website.
