How can you decide which dentist to trust in helping protect your oral health and provide cosmetic dental services? With so many dentists in San Diego, it can feel overwhelming trying to find one that will care for your teeth with the concern and expertise that you deserve. Many patients in San Diego have discovered the high quality clinical services provided by Dr. Addleson, Dr. Campbell and Dr. Landau at the Art of Dentistry on Fifth Avenue.
How does Dr. Lawrence Addleson stand out among his peers in providing dental care that exceeds the competition? One way is through his training and credentials. He was awarded Fellowship (FAACD) in the highly respected American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) and is a Board Examiner for both Accreditation and Fellowship of the AACD.
Dr. Addleson has also served two terms as Chairman of the Board of Governors of the AACD, now known as the American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry. In addition he served as President of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in 2004-2005.
As is the case in other occupations, the skill level among dentists varies by a large margin. This is what differentiates Dr. Addleson from other dentists. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry offers six levels of membership, from general members with no requirements other than membership up to the most accomplished level, accredited fellow. Dr. Addleson is one of only 53 dentists throughout the world to have achieved that highest level. Recipients of the title “Accredited Fellow” are required to pass oral and written exams along with submitting 50 examples of their dentistry for peer examiners to evaluate.
In fact, because of his reputation as an experienced dentist with amazing clinical ability and craftsmanship, he has been asked to lecture nationally and internationally on aesthetic dentistry and smile design. He recently lectured at Continuing Education Adventures in San Diego in November 2011.
