AACD announces class of 2012
NEW YORK, NY, USA: Excellence in cosmetic dentistry can be defined in many ways, but one of them is through AACD accreditation — the academy’s coveted credential. This year, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry has welcomed 12 dental professionals to accredited member status and two to the AACD accredited fellow ranks.

It took hard work and perseverance, but they’ve achieved their goal of joining the AACD’s highly acclaimed credentialed group — an experience some AACD members have noted as “life-changing,” both professionally and personally.

Dr. Susan Hollar and Dr. C. Lee Wyant have been named accredited fellows in the academy. Fellowship is the highest level of achievement available to AACD members.

The purpose of fellowship is to provide a higher level of achievement for members in accordance with the AACD’s mission of education and excellence.

The newly accredited members are:
David K. Chan, DMD
Todd L. Cochran
C Kent Decker, CDT
Chiann Fan Gibson, DMD
Gesica T. Horn, DDS
Phillip A. Kemp, DDS
Lonnie Lee, CDT
Rebecca K. Pitts, DMD (accredited laboratory technician)
Lauren J. Shanard, DDS
Todd C. Snyder, DDS
Aliasger Tunkiwala, BDS, MDS
Ossie R. Vereen, CDT, MDT

The accreditation process, which was developed by the AACD and is the world’s most recognized advanced credentialing program, encourages further education, interaction with like-minded colleagues and the opportunity for professional growth. Accreditation requires dedication to continuing education and responsible patient care. To earn the credential, individuals were required to pass a written and oral examination and submit several different case types.

“Accredited dentists and laboratory technicians are the most passionate and committed dental professionals, and we welcome these 12 individuals to the ranks of accredited member status, and two to accredited fellow status,” said Dr. Nils Olson, chairperson for AACD accreditation.
