AACD Fellowship

In May of 2006, Dr. Montgomery received his Accreditation by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD).

Founded in 1984, the AACD is dedicated to continuing education in the rapidly evolving field of cosmetic dentistry. Accreditation represents the acknowledgment of a doctor’s excellence in cosmetic dentistry.

The process of gaining AACD accreditation often takes years to accomplish and requires a strong dedication to continuing education, combined with a firm resolve to produce exceptional dentistry.

Candidates are given up to five years to complete the accreditation and must partake in a three-part process including a written examination, submission of five highly complex Clinical Cases documenting superior diagnostic and clinical excellence. These cases are projected on a large screen and a panel of examiners from the AACD scrutinizes the results and grades them on 72 different criteria’s.

Once the five cases have passed, the candidate will qualify for the oral examination with the oral examiners and must pass this final step. With his AACD Accreditation, Dr. Montgomery joins an elite group of only 6 other dentists in Minnesota, and 410 dentists world wide who have achieved this prestigious recognition.

Dr. Marc Montgomery has completed all levels of membership provided by the AACD.

On the AACD site, you can scroll over each level to learn more. You can personally view Dr. Montgomery’s profile on the AACD site.

According to the AACD this is an explanation of what a fully accredited fellow is:

“Accredited Fellow is the highest credential earned in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). In addition to meeting the rigorous requirements of an Accredited Member, an Accredited Fellow has successfully completed cosmetic dentistry that meets the Accreditation standard of excellence set forth by the American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry for an additional 45 patients. By successfully completing this process, an Accredited Fellow demonstrates a continued ability and sustained commitment to deliver excellence in cosmetic dentistry. The status of Accredited Fellow pertains to one individual and does not necessarily denote the credentials of other individuals within their practice.”

People seeking to find the best dentist for their needs often look for a dentist’s credentials. You can be confident in Dr. Marc L. Montgomery’s exceptional certification status.

Life-changing transformations with big reasons to smile

My entire family has been with Marc for more than 4 years. We have been so fortunate to have found him! He delivers superior results and is always eager to help me find a solution to my dental concerns when it comes to my bite and alignment. Even my children look forward to their dental visits, which is the exact opposite of me as a child! I would absolutely hands down recommend Montgomery Dental!
