ACCREDITATION STATUS: Following the site visit in March 2006 the ADA issued this statement for the GPR program at Ohio State: The dental education programs in ... general practice residency ... are accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation [and have 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 April 2013.

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.
