August 2009 Madison, WI – Guy F. Grabiak, DMD of Littleton, CO, has passed the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s (AACD) Accreditation Written Examination. The Accreditation Written Examination is the first step in the Accreditation process and challenges a dentist’s or laboratory technician’s foundational knowledge in cosmetic dentistry. This examination was administered in Honolulu, Hawaii during the 25th Anniversary AACD Scientific Session.

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. Each individual pursuing Accreditation must also attend two specified workshops as part of the process. While each part of the process must be completed in sequence, dentists and laboratory technicians have up to five years to complete the process after successfully completing the written examination. By successfully passing the Accreditation Written Examination, Guy F. Grabiak, DMD has entered into the second phase of the Accreditation process.

Accreditation has evolved through the years by incorporating innovative techniques, materials, and technology. This helps the AACD maintain the highest standards in cosmetic dentistry.
