In consideration that participants are beginning to explore education in cosmetic dentistry, the AACD Credentialing standards will not be applied to the judgment of this poster session. Recognition in the poster session does not imply compliance with the AACD's Credentialing Standards nor does it imply achievement of Accreditation or Accreditation-level dentistry.
