About the DQA
The Dental Quality Alliance (DQA) was established by the American Dental Association to develop performance measures for oral health care. The DQA is an organization of major stakeholders in oral health care delivery that will use a collaborative approach to develop oral health care measures.
The mission of the Dental Quality Alliance is to advance performance measurement as a means to improve oral health, patient care and safety through a consensus-building process.
- To identify and develop evidence-based oral health care performance measures and measurement resources.
- To advance the effectiveness and scientific basis of clinical performance measurement and improvement.
- To foster and support professional accountability, transparency, and value in oral health care through the development, implementation and evaluation of performance measurement.
