PCC Dental Program Receives Accreditation from ADA Commission

The Pasadena City College Dental Program was recently accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA) Commission on Dental Accreditation, whose purpose is to establish, maintain, and apply standards that ensure the quality and continuous improvement of dental and dental-related education.

"The accreditation is based on an annual report, a site visit every seven years, and a self study submitted by each of the programs—Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, and Dental Laboratory Technology," explained Lori Gagliardi, associate professor of Health Sciences.

All three dental programs were found to be in compliance, according to Gagliardi. This was the ADA Commission's sixth site evaluation of the Dental Assisting program, the fifth site evaluation of the Dental Hygiene program, and the seventh site evaluation of the Dental Laboratory Technology program.
