UIC COD welcomed the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) this week for an accreditation site visit. The accreditation team met with faculty, students and administrators and toured the building and facilities November 12th and 13th. CODA visits accredited schools every seven years after initial accreditation.
CODA accredits dental schools as well as advanced dental education programs and allied dental education programs in the United States. CODA was established in 1975 and is nationally recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) as the sole agency to accredit dental and dental-related education programs conducted at the post-secondary level. CODA's mission is to serve the oral health care needs of the public through the development and administration of standards that foster continuous quality improvement of dental and dental related educational programs.
