Metro Dentalcare Earns National Recognition with AAAHC Once Again

Nationally recognized  Metro Dentalcare (Northland Dental Partners PC) is
re-accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care    (AAAHC)

Quality, safety and value to the patient does not just happen. Organizational order, alignment, heedfulness, and constancy of purpose are essential. The leadership must become organizational exemplars, dignify every voice and cherish the self-worth of every person. Front line teams must remain collectively activated, cohesive and mission driven.  Individuals must be honest, forthright principled- think before doing- reflect on the choices ,never compromise on values and always act in the best interest of the patient.

Delivering on the promise of quality, safety and value is the result of a relentless pursuit of excellence in health care every day with every patient.

This endeavor was led by a very special group of individuals- a collectively purposeful, cohesively directed and foundationally collaborative team. Every member, dignified, improved and contributed to the whole and the team itself manifestly exemplified each of the valued individual contributors.

Characterized by an exemplary leadership and trust amongst ; Dr. Cindy McGregor, Dr. Tom Haas, Dr. James Ludke, Dr. Bill Johnson,  Julie Dunn, Hanna Nguyen-Dao, Cindy Kuschel, Linda Jepson, Tina Funari, Martina Hovey; exquisite support from Julie Lynch and alignment amongst the Doctors, Dental Hygienists, Practice Managers, Clinical and Administrative teams- and organizational resilience to meet any challenge- this is Metro Dentalcare.

Congratulations to the entire Metro Dentalcare Team. You could not have been more organized, directed and detailed. Your preparation was superb.

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) surveyors were thoroughly impressed with the organizational infrastructure, social operating and quality systems; mostly though they were impressed by the people. Professionals in every sense of the word; you embody the very attributes any of us would entrust with our own health.

The privilege to serve “the most important person in the room- the patient” comes with a manifest obligation and promise of respect and trust- and you are delivering on both the obligation and promise. The national recognition that comes from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) is well deserved

Congratulations to the entire Metro Dentalcare Team! You are a credit to your community and an inspiration to all American Dental Partners affiliated dental groups.

With Respect,


Dr. Jesley Ruff
Senior Vice President
Chief Professional Officer
