Although we do not offer cosmetic dentistry as a specialty, we do offer dental treatments that are considered as helping to improve a patient’s smile. We recognize that self esteem is closely tied to an individual’s wellness, consequently we encourage patients to discuss any concerns that affect their appearance
Specialized Dentistry (AACD excerpt)
It may come as a surprise that cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized dental specialty. Any dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist, regardless of his or her experience and skill.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry was founded in 1984 by Dr. Jack Kammer and co-founder Dr. Jeff Morley. A small group of dentists met to develop a standard for cosmetic dentistry and establish an organization dedicated to responsible esthetics. Over the past three decades, the AACD has matured into the world’s largest and most trusted organization for cosmetic dentistry.
The AACD now includes more than 6,000 dental professionals, laboratory technicians, educators, and researchers from 70 countries worldwide. This global perspective allows AACD members to gather information from the international field of cosmetic dentistry.
