The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) recently awarded Chatsworth dentist Dr. Bernie B. Villadiego accredited status for excellence in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Villadiego is the first and only dentist in the North San Fernando Valley to receive accreditation by the AACD. Out of the 9000 AACD members, less than 260 dentists in the world have successfully completed the rigorous accreditation testing of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. “I wanted to prove to myself that I can be part of this very elite group of cosmetic dentists world wide,” stated Dr. Villadiego. “Achieving this accreditation assures my patients that they are in very capable and experienced hands.”
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, an accredited member “has completed extensive training and education in cosmetic dentistry. In addition, this credentialed dentist or technician has successfully passed a rigorous Accreditation Board Examination and has demonstrated a very high level of technical skill and ability in cosmetic dentistry.”
Dr. Villadiego earned his credentials by passing a stringent process of clinical examinations and oral presentations administered before a panel of accredited dentists from across the United States. Accreditation is an honor requiring years of study and preparation.
