Congratulations to Rodrigo Souza, D.D.S., an assistant professor and program director for the AEGD program in Hialeah, who was appointed a site inspector for the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) beginning October 2015. Site visitors are appointed for one-year terms that are renewable for six years.
“I appreciate Dr. Souza’s willingness to serve in this role for CODA. In addition to supporting our national accrediting agency, it will also be an enriching educational experience for him which will ultimately benefit the college,” said Isabel Garcia, D.D.S., M.P.H., dean of the UF College of Dentistry.
Site visitors assist CODA in a number of ways including developing accreditation standards, serving on special committees, and serving as site visitors to predoctoral, advanced dental and allied dental education programs.
