UDA is nationally recognized for quality, having maintained accreditation through the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care.  This accreditation is an external, independent review of a health care delivery organization against nationally-accepted standards and its own policies, procedures, processes and outcomes. In other words: Is the organization delivering safe, high-quality patient care in the way that it says it will?

AAAHC accreditation means that the organization participates in on-going self evaluation, peer review and education to continuously improve its care and services. The organization also commits to a thorough, on-site survey by AAAHC surveyors, who are themselves health care professionals, at least every three years.

The AAAHC is a peer-based, not-for-profit organization that is nationally recognized for conducting extensive evaluations of ambulatory health care organizations to ensure the highest quality standards. Health care organizations undergo a voluntary process to measure the quality of their services and performance against nationally recognized standards.

Dental groups are measured against the following core standards:

  • Patient Rights and Responsibilities
  • Governance & Administration
  • Quality of Care Provided
  • Quality Management and Improvement
  • Clinical Records and Health Information
  • Infection Prevention and Control and Safety
  • Facilities and Environment
