About the Georgia Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
In addition to hosting hands-on training courses, the GACD attracts respected leaders in cosmetic dentistry to share their knowledge and wisdom with its members.
Cosmetic dentistry is not an official specialty recognized by the American Dental Association, so there are no state or national regulations for practicing cosmetic dentistry. While there is no official certification for dentists to acquire, cosmetic dentistry has become mainstream. The GACD provides essential training, study opportunities, and networking for dentists who truly want to become “experts” in this discipline.
