About

Bio

I am an internationally recognized lecturer on cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and one of less than 350 dentists worldwide Accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). I have served on the Board of DIrectors for eight years and as President of the AACD from 2011-2012.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
