AAHC Accredited Oral Surgery Practice in Colleyville, TX
Texas Oral Surgery Specialists is proud to be accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) Accreditation Association. We have achieved this honor because we are committed to maintaining the highest possible safety standards and to providing our patients with truly exceptional care. To further this commitment, we utilize the latest technology, including digital x-rays and scans. AAAHC accreditation sets us apart so you know that you are receiving the finest possible treatment.
What Is AAHC Accreditation?
To obtain the AAAHC Certificate of Accreditation, an office voluntarily undergoes a rigorous evaluation process. During this time, experienced professionals monitor the practice’s performance, work quality, and long-term safety records. They then compare them to nationally recognized and accepted standards. Our accreditation indicates that we have undergone this process and have demonstrated standards that exceed nation-wide expectations. Not every surgical center applies for accreditation, and not all those that do pass this intensive investigation process. There are a little over 5,000 accredited centers in the country, though only a small percentage focus on oral and maxillofacial surgery.
The Importance of Accreditation
To receive accreditation, an ambulatory center must demonstrate continued excellence in several key areas. These considerations include:
- Rights of Patients
- Quality of Care
- Quality Management and Improvement
- Clinical Records and Health Information
- Facilities and Environment
The AAAHC carefully and routinely updates these standards, publishing them in the AAAHC Accreditation Handbook. To maintain recognition, a facility must follow current protocols. Therefore, when you visit an accredited practice, like Texas Oral Surgery Specialists, you know your care will be safe and effective, performed with ultramodern techniques and tools.
How Does AAAHC Accreditation at Texas Oral Surgery Specialists Affect Patient Care?
When you are getting ready for oral surgery, finding the right doctor is the most important step. Though finances and convenience are definitely important, experience and skill should be your top concerns. You should ask potential doctors detailed questions about their background, expertise, credentials, and standards for excellence.
An independent third party review by the AAAHC shows that Dr. Chris Tye has undergone an exhaustive investigation of his policies, practices, and surgical outcomes. Accreditation is proof that our center has met or exceeded all of these exacting standards. Accordingly, our well-earned credentials can set your mind at ease as you or your loved one prepares for treatment.
