Aesthetic dentistry is truly an art. Your cosmetic dentist needs an artistic eye and artistic ability to understand the ideal proportions, contours and color of your smile. The best cosmetic dentists have extensive experience and training to fully understand the newest dental technology and materials.
Contrary to common belief, cosmetic dentistry is actually not a recognized specialty of the American Dental Association (ADA). Orthodontics, endodontics, periodontics, and oral surgery are all examples of recognized specialties of the ADA, but not cosmetic dentistry. So, what makes someone a top cosmetic dentist? Years of experience, ample training, studying dental technologies, learning about dental products, and, most importantly, an artistic touch differentiate a cosmetic dentist from a general family dentist.
The most important characteristic of a cosmetic dentist is the ability to listen attentively to your goals. You should feel comfortable speaking about your aspirations and hesitations with your cosmetic dentist, because you need to design the perfect smile together.
You should ask your friends in the community for referrals. If you like someone’s smile, you should ask the person for the name of his or her cosmetic dentist.

About my experiences as a cosmetic dentist
While in college, I decided on a career in dentistry. At the time, working as a dentist seemed to be the perfect combination of art and science, two fields I always enjoyed. Twenty-five years later, I continue to love my profession. After attending and teaching at Tufts Dental School, I moved to south Florida with my wife Joanne and have been practicing in the Delray and Boynton Beach area ever since. Over the years, the advancements in aesthetic dentistry have been incredible. The technology has improved exponentially, and cosmetic dentistry has become my passion. With the materials available today, almost any smile makeover is possible.
