The College of Dentistry, in concert with the entire Medical Center, is implementing a total quality management system recognized as Distinction Through Quality (DTQ). DTQ supports the following principles:

  • Focus on Customers
  • Prevent Problems: Do It Right the First Time
  • Make Decisions Based on Facts
  • Systems Fail, Not People
  • Continuously Improve the System

DTQ is both a process and a philosophy aimed at limitless, continuous improvement of our services to meet the needs of our customers, patients, students, faculty and staff. Once DTQ is fully implemented, our commitment and obligation toward this goal will empower each person within the system to assist in creating a positive environment in which to work, learn and care for our patients.
