The program will provide experience relating to all facets of an esthetic restorative dental practice.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) will launch a cosmetic dentistry residency pilot program this August with three dental residents, each learning from an AACD Accredited Fellow. Elizabeth M. Bakeman, DDS, FAACD; Susan Hollar, DDS, FAACD, and Brian P. LeSage, DDS, FAACD, will each be instructing a dental resident and providing experience relating to all facets of an esthetic restorative dental practice, including effective practice management, diagnostic tools and restorative considerations.
Residents will acquire the clinical and business experience needed to jump start a career in a cosmetic-oriented restorative dental practice by completing a series of requirements, including studying dental literature and implementing simple to complex restorative cases.
“The AACD Residency program is designed to expose young dentists to the clinical and business side of a fee-for-service style private practice,” says preceptor Brian LeSage, DDS, FAACD.
The AACD is excited to announce the first AACD cosmetic dentistry residents:
These dental professionals will have the unique opportunity to learn one on one from some of the most successful restorative dentists in the country and to observe, document and execute a variety of cosmetic restorative solutions. In addition to gaining knowledge and experience relating to all facets of an esthetic restorative dental practice, these residents will gain the skills and confidence they need to enjoy the professional and financial successes that comes with a responsible, esthetic dental practice.
