Dr. Phillips Completes First Step in AACD Accreditation

Posted on May 7, 2012, by Phillips & Schmitt, DDS, PA

Asheville dentist Dr. Douglas Phillips, DDS has successfully passed the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s (AACD) Accreditation Written Examination, the first step in the AACD’s accreditation process, which challenges a dental professional’s foundational knowledge in cosmetic dentistry.

The accreditation written exam was administered in Washington, DC, during the 28th Annual AACD Scientific Session.

AACD accreditation is the world’s most recognized advanced credentialing program, and it encourages further education, interaction with like-minded dental professionals, and the opportunity for professional growth. Achieving accreditation by the AACD requires dedication to continuing education, careful adherence to the protocols, and a resolve to produce exceptional cosmetic dentistry. The AACD’s accreditation program for dentists and laboratory technicians is a three-part process consisting of a written examination, clinical case examinations, and an oral examination.

“Achieving accreditation sets a high standard of excellence in cosmetic dentistry,” said Nelson Rego, CDT, AACD Accreditation chair. “Congratulations to everyone who completed this first step in the process, and we look forward to welcoming more Accredited Members to the Academy in the future!”
