Valley Dental Group is proud to be one of the first dental groups in the nation to be accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is a voluntary process through which an ambulatory health care organization is able to measure the quality of its services and performance against nationally recognized standards. The accreditation process involves self-assessment by the organization as well as a thorough review by AAAHC’s expert surveyors, who are themselves practicing health care professionals.
The accreditation certificate is a symbol to others that an organization is committed to providing high quality care and that it has demonstrated its commitment by measuring up to AAAHC’s high standards.
Why is Accreditation so Important?
Health care organizations value accreditation as a measure of professional achievement and quality of care. The certificate of accreditation has become a benchmark of quality not only to those involved in health care delivery and management, but also to the general public.
