An AACD Accredited dentist is special: There are fewer than 350 AACD Accredited members in the world. An Accredited dentist has advance their level of cosmetic dentistry education to bring their patients the best care available. Accreditation requires a demonstrably high level of proficiency in cosmetic dentistry and an unwavering dedication to continuing education and responsible patient care.

Accreditation in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry involves a rigorous clinical testing process. It begins with a written examination and then progresses to a series of clinical cases that cover a number of different situations and levels of complexity. Finally, Accreditation is achieved after passing an oral examination where clinical cases are presented to the board. This entire process typically takes years to complete, but is worth the additional effort for the dentists who achieve AACD Accreditation, since it encourages further education, interaction with colleagues, and the opportunity for professional growth.

Members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry belong to the world’s largest international cosmetic dental organization. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is the world’s largest international dental organization dedicated to advancing excellence in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry and encouraging the highest standards of ethical conduct and patient care through responsible esthetics.

The role of the dental lab in your smile makeover.

The role of the dental lab in your smile makeover.  You might not have given the idea of which dental laboratory your dentist uses much thought.  You should because this is more important than you think.  Just like all dentists are not created equal neither are the dental laboratories.  Some dental laboratories are large facilities that cater to large quantities of dentists nationally.  This type of dental lab is the Wal-Mart of dentistry.  The teeth they produce are adequate but very little artistry goes into their creation.  This type of lab is available to every dentist and the quality is adequate.  The other type of dental laboratory is like a fine art specialty store.  Here the laboratory personal are more than just technicians stamping out teeth that all look the same.  This laboratory is usually owned by a Master Ceramist.  A Master Ceramist is someone who understands the art of creating a beautiful smile.  Their creations are indistinguishable from natural teeth.  Only a select few dentists who qualify in skill comparable to the ceramist are invited to use the laboratory to create beautiful smiles. Naturally the cost for teeth created by a Master Ceramist is very different than those created by the Wal-Mart technician.  Both will work.  The question is do you want your smile to be a custom fabricated work of art indistinguishable to natural beautiful teeth or do you want  standard “teeth”.  In dentistry as in all walks of life you get what you pay for and the best always costs more.

Dental Myths exposed. Myth #1: All Dentists are the same.

Dental Myths exposed.  Myth #1:  All Dentists are the same.  When we graduate from dental school we all have the same basic knowledge to become excellent dentists but as in any profession there are always those members of the group that excel.  It is what happens after dental school that distinguishes one dentist from another.  After dental school it is up to the dentist to expand his knowledge and hone his skill.  Dentistry is both an art and a science.  The art of dentistry is something that comes natural like art or sculpture.  That is why some doctors excel in cosmetics.  The science of dentistry is equally important.  It is in this way that the doctor stays current with all the latest techniques and technology available to offer the highest quality of care available.  That is why Drs Lerner and Lemongello attend hundreds of hours of continuing education each year at some of the most prestigious institutes of learning.  When they are not attending dental education seminars they are often teaching them.  This is how they maintain their experience and leadership in dentistry and earn the respect of their peers and their patients.  Dental Myth exposed.  No, not all dentists are the same, nor is the care and service you receive.  Our office is prepared to offer you exceptional doctors, exceptional care and exceptional service.

Cosmetic Dentist?

Ever notice how every dentist now is a Cosmetic Dentist.  Any dentist can take a weekend course and consider themselves a cosmetic dentist.  Actually they don’t even need to take a course.  In today’s’ world just because a dentist has what appears to be a state of the art office doesn’t mean he is qualified in cosmetic dentistry. So how is a consumer hoping to transform their smile supposed to know who to choose?  One way is to ask the right questions!  Can the dentist show you before and after photos of other patients’ treated in the office?  Has the dentist taken hands on instruction in cosmetic dentistry?  Does the dentist teach these techniques to other dentists?  Do other specialists in the field recommend the dentist?  Can you personally speak to actual patients that have been treated?  In our office, Drs. Lerner and Lemongello can answer yes to all these questions.  Can the dentist you are considering treatment with do the same? If not perhaps you need to make an appointment in our office.
