Following the site visit in October 2008 the ADA issued this statement for the AEGD program at The University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry: The dental education program in ... advanced education in general dentistry residency ... is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation [and has been granted the accreditation status of "approval without reporting requirements"]. (This is the highest possible accreditation status.) The Commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education. The Commission on Dental Accreditation can be contacted at (312) 440-4653 or at 211 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60611. The Commission's web address is http://www.ada.org/100.aspx. The next site visit is scheduled for October 2015.
The Commission on Dental Accreditation has accredited the postdoctoral program in general dentistry. However, this education area is not one of the American Dental Association recognized dental specialty areas. Therefore, dentists graduating from this program cannot announce that they are specialists, as recognized by the American Dental Association.
