This year we have a complete 2023 electronic document with exhibits on the extensive course flash drive. A copyright agreement must be signed to receive the flash drive and full attendance is mandatory. We do not sell flash drives to anyone who does not attend the workshop. This 8 hour workshop is designed to guide dental hygiene educators through the accreditation process, prepare them for a site visit and introduce them to procedures required before and after the site visit. It provides detailed instructions on demonstrating compliance with the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) Standards for Dental Hygiene Education Programs and how to have an in-depth understanding of each standard and how to demonstrate program compliance with each standard. There will be an emphasis placed on the most frequently cited standards. Updates and changes in the standards are compared with previous accreditation standards to assist attendees in managing what is now expected from the standards. This course provides a step by step guide to organizing and preparing a self-study document. Guidelines for conducting a successful site visit are provided in this course. The “Do’s” and “Don’ts” of a successful site visit will be clearly outlined for the attendees. This course does not guarantee one’s success at preparing a self-study document or a recommendation free report from the CODA site visit committee.
(This class limited to 30 participants)

DH Methods of Education, Inc. is not responsible for reimbursement of non-refundable airline tickets and any other travel expenses due to missed flights (delays, cancellations weather related or otherwise) or if the course is cancelled. Course flash drives will ONLY be given out to those who attend the courses. Those who miss class for any reason will not be given the course flash drive.
A word about our course flash drives and materials.
We do not sell the course flash drives and/or materials separately. They are only received after completing the “How to Teach” subject specific course. This is our policy since ownership of the course flash drive and materials copyright agreement and course certification are proof to CODA that the recipient did indeed attend the methodology classroom session. Having the materials alone could be misconstrued as meeting Standard 3-7 since CODA usually recognizes our course materials and associates them with the face to face instruction that demonstrates compliance with the standard. The materials belong to the college or university that pays the tuition, not the attendee.
