M State’s Dental Assisting program awarded national accreditation

M State Dental Assisting imageThe Dental Assisting program at Minnesota State Community and Technical College has been awarded renewed accreditation by the national Commission on Dental Accreditation.

M State’s program, offered on the college’s Moorhead campus, received full accreditation with no reporting requirements until 2022, a classification indicating that an educational program achieves or exceeds the requirements for accreditation.

CODA is the sole agency that reviews dental and dental-related programs for accreditation, which is an assurance of a quality program.

M State offers both an Associate of Science degree and diploma in Dental Assisting. In addition to academic coursework, students in the program receive invaluable clinic experience through the on-campus Community Dental Clinic, which provides dental care to nearly 800 patients a year.
