Program Accreditation

The Dental Office Managers Association of Canada (the Association) is the national accrediting body for Dental Office Administration education in Canada. Accreditation provides public notification that a program meets the standards of quality education set forth by the Association. As a process, accreditation with the Dental Office Managers Association of Canada, as the national regulatory body, confirms that the educational facility is committed to self-assessment and external peer review in meeting or exceeding the standards and to continuously find new ways to enhance the quality of education and training provided. The ultimate goal is to meet the evolving needs of the Dental Office Administration professional – that of supporting quality healthcare decisions through quality health information management practices.

The Association’s program accreditation process is the means by which it evaluates formal educational programs for their suitability to prepare students to meet national standards and become eligible to enter practices, across Canada, as certified professionals. Graduates of accredited programs are eligible to challenge the Association’s national certification examination.

In relation to program accreditation, the Dental Office Managers Association of Canada works to:

  • Implement continuous quality improvement in educational activities
  • Develop and maintain dynamic learning content for program implementation and professional education which support the advancement of professional standards
  • Monitor and evaluate programs to ensure continuous quality and effectiveness of formal programs
