The Dental Hygiene program is accredited by the ADA Commission on Dental Accreditation.
Accreditation assures that your dental hygiene education meets the required standards set forth by the ADA Joint Commission and the Department of Professional Licensing for the State of Utah.
The Weber State University Dental Hygiene program is accredited with no reporting requirements by the American Dental Association Joint Commission on Dental Accreditation and has been since 1975. Accreditation reviews are on a 7-year cycle. The last review was 2017; due to COVID delays, the next review is in 2025.
The ADA Joint Commission on Dental Accreditation serves as a resource for accredited dental hygiene education programs and will review complaints that related to a program's compliance with the accreditation standards. The Commission is interested in the sustained quality and continued improvement of dental education programs, but does not intervene on behalf of individuals or act as a court of appeal.
