Should Cosmetic Dentistry Be Its Own Dental Specialty? (video)

Should Cosmetic Dentistry be Its Own Dental Specialty? (video)Cosmetic dentistry is the biggest buzzword in dentistry today.

According to the AACD’s 2011 State of the Cosmetic Dentistry Industry survey, dental practice revenues generated from cosmetic dental procedures will likely remain stable, with growth anticipated in some categories.

As cosmetic dental treatments continue to grow in popularity, should it be its own dental specialty?

With the increase in demand for cosmetic dentistry, The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey asking dentists if cosmetic dentistry should be recognized by the ADA as its own specialty.

Dentists weren’t so sure.  As one dentist responded, “Name one dentist who does ugly dentistry.  This specialty will insult the whole dental profession.  Cosmetic dentistry is a legalized ripoff!”

On the other side, we have the dental marketing specialist who said, “The answer is YES.  I cannot tell you how many dental patients I have seen who needed a complete redo because clinicians did not understand the concept of Smile Design.”

    I agree with you 100%, but some cosmetic dentists are excellent practitioners, and do amazing work. It is unfortunate, that some cosmetic dentists  my make the other cosmetic dentist have a bad reputation.
    It is difficult for you to be a Cosmetics dentist 2 years out of school. I entice all cosmetic dentist who truly feel the need to understand the principals of occlusion  and esthetics need of patients,    to bite the bullet and go back and do a Prosthodontic program
