Deerwood Orthodontics is proud to be one of a select group nationwide to be accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Our accreditation tells you that AAAHC's independent team of health care professionals has found that we meet their rigorous, nationally-recognized standards for health care services. Accreditation demands a high level of commitment and effort. It challenges us to always find better ways to serve you, and it is one more way for us to say "we care about you." When selecting a dental provider, AAAHC accreditation is one of the things you may consider and ask about. These are just a few examples of what the AAAHC looks for when surveying an organization. Deerwood Orthodontics meets all these qualifications and parameters.
