In order to continually serve our stakeholders, clients and their customers we have revised, updated, and improved version 1.0. which has served for 5 years. In that period, advances in scientific thought and healthcare concepts now require a step forward in the methods and guidance required for meeting and leading dental facilities into the future. This new Version 2.0 of the AACI International Accreditation Standards for Dental Facilities has been prepared by AACI Standard Development Committee and contains all the Standards and notes needed for the AACI Accreditation process.
This standard is intended to provide requirements for restorative, orthodontic, and endodontic dental practices which utilize no sedation/anesthesia other than topical or nerve block techniques. Office based dental and oral surgical facilities which incorporate sedation/anesthesia services must utilize the AACI International Accreditation Standard for Healthcare Organizations for accreditation purposes.
The latest version of the AACI Dentistry Standards is even more closely aligned with the needs of patients and the organizations providing dental services. It includes improvements that will benefit both clients and dental facilities during the accreditation process.
Our Standards will continue to evolve as the ever-changing needs of healthcare provision require. AACI welcomes your on-going advice and input. We strive to continuously improve the provision of healthcare quality for all.” —John D Bell M.D. ,President, AACI.
The revised version of Standard for Dental Services is due to be published end of August 2020.
