Objectives : The aim of this research was to develop evaluation indicators that ensure safe services and enhance the quality of small-sized dental hospitals within local communities to prepare for the dental hospital accreditation system. Methods : Materials and data from a total of 460 respondents were analyzed after quality improvement indicators were formed by surveying experts and studying documents in Korea and abroad, and by conducting a survey from August 21, 2013 to September 30, 2013 for validation purposes. Results : Based on the results of factor analysis. all measured items appeared to be statistically significant with a factor loading score of at least 0.5, and the correlation between the factors all appeared to be high as well. The goodness-of-fit for the model also appeared to be within the recommended acceptance level. Thus, the proposed evaluation indicators for dental hospital accreditation developed in this study consisted of a total of seven major category factors and a total of 91 detailed items. Conclusions : Furthermore, the results suggest that the evaluation indicators can be used to improve the quality and to ensure the safe services of dental hospitals in local communities.
