If you decide that practice accreditation is something you would like to pursue, the first thing you will need to do is register. If you're an ADA member, you will find that it is significantly cheaper to undertake the process, which usually involves the following steps:

1. Fill out the online registration form

2. The receipt of a registration confirmation email from the ADA's accreditation partner, Quality           Innovation Performance

3. A welcome kit which arrives in the mail within 2-4 weeks; it includes your unique practice ID and     log-in details, giving you access to the online system, AccreditationPro.

If you represent multiple practices, the usual single practice fees will not apply. In general, if your policies and procedures are consistent across all your locations, a 15% applies when you register more than one practice. Please contact the ADA prior to registration to talk about the process and the exact costs for taking multiple practices you operate through practice accreditation. Not-for-Profit organisations, charity groups, and government-funded community services may also be eligible to access the ADA member fee.

If you have any queries about the registration process, experience any trouble registering or have further questions about what's involved in undertaking practice accreditation, please get in touch with the ADA directly at [email protected]
