AACD ACCREDITED MEMBER
Dr. Koczarski is proud to be an AACD-accredited cosmetic dentist.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) is the only recognized accrediting organization of its kind, and has established the standard by which excellent cosmetic dentists are measured. As of early 2011, nearly 8,000 dental professionals in 70 different countries are members of the AACD.
Not all AACD members receive accreditation. In fact, only 4 percent of AACD members have been granted this honor. Achieving AACD accreditation is a rigorous process. Candidates must complete comprehensive written and oral exams, as well as clinical case presentations. A board of examiners judges the exams and case studies. Only those who have met the board’s exacting criteria for technical and artistic excellence are granted AACD member accreditation.
Currently, only 331 dentists worldwide are accredited members of the AACD. In 2011, Dr. Koczarski received this honor, putting him in an elite group of internationally ranked cosmetic dentists.
What does this mean to you? It’s assurance that you’re in the hands of a cosmetic dentist judged by his peers as one of the world’s best, and, most importantly, that your treatment, service and results will be world-class.
