Quality Assurance

As a component of the Quality Assurance Program established under the auspices of the Office of Clinical Affairs, the Quality Assurance Program has been implemented to assist the various clinical disciplines in the provision of efficient and effective quality dental services.

The School of Dentistry conducts a formal system of quality assurance for the patient care program, based on the standards of care that are measured by department chairs, audits, chart audits, clinical examination of a random sample of patients, patient surveys, exit exams and post treatment exams. Policies, procedures, corrective action and follow-up measures are in place for patient care and program improvements.
