Accreditation serves to set standards for excellence in cosmetic dentistry. Achieving Accredited status from the AACD requires dedication to continuing education, careful adherence to the protocols, and a resolve to produce exceptional dentistry.
 
Advanced Accreditation Workshop
Wednesday, May 2, 2012
8:00 am - 2:30 pm
The Advanced Accreditation Workshop provides an in-depth analysis of how Accreditation cases are judged, as well as a chance for individuals to have their own cases reliably critiqued. Although this workshop is not required, it is universally judged as the most helpful step for those candidates approaching Accredited status. Attendees are encouraged to have taken the two required workshops (the Accreditation and Criteria Workshops) prior to attending this advanced course.
 
All attendees are encouraged to bring clinical cases in Microsoft PowerPoint widescreen format on a memory stick to be reviewed during the breakout session:
