Some people believe that Dr. Arthur Chal is the best dentist in Phoenix. Since there are no recognized criteria for determining the best dentist, we can’t make that claim. But here are some of his credentials. Note that he has been named as one of the best dentists in the Phoenix area by several organizations:

  • 1992 – Became Accredited with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. (AAACD)
  • 1994 – Began his long tenure as an Accreditation Examiner with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, a position which he held until the end of 2012. His judgment and examining detail is held in very high regard among accredited cosmetic dentists, and so he is one of only three examiners with over fifteen years’ tenure.
  • 2010 – Examining Board honors Dr. Chal. For details, please read the full story on the next page in this section, titled “Honors and Awards.” That page is linked from the menu across the top of this page and from the menu at the bottom.
  • 1995 – Elected to the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Has been an invited guest lecturer at the University of Minnesota Postgraduate Program in Esthetic Dentistry.

Dr. Chal is the Founder and Director of The Phoenix Group, LLC. This multidisciplinary group of medical-dental specialists was assembled to provide coordinated interdisciplinary car e for patients with complex facial-dental problems.

Listed in Who’s Who in Leading Professionals and Executives.

Dr. Chal is the only dentist in Arizona to simultaneously hold advanced credentials in general dentistry (i.e., F.A.G.D.), cosmetic dentistry (i.e., Accredited A.A.C.D.) and implant dentistry (i.e., F.I.C.O.I.).

Dr. Chal basically saved my mouth from an imminent implosion, a result from shoddy and/or unnecessary dental work. Dr. Chal has a miracle team who has performed some wonderful work on me. I have much more work to be completed, but thus far, Dr. Chal has met and exceeded my expectations. He does charge a bit more than other dental offices, but after some very bad experiences, I truly believe that you get what you pay for, and he is definitely worth every penny! So much so, that even if I move across the country, I plan to keep him as my primary & only Dentist…

Dr. Chal is worth the prices he charges. I and several people I know have been to him to do restorative work because we were told he was one of the best cosmetic dentists in the world. My veneers now look the way they are supposed to. I would recommend him to anyone that asked me for a superb dentist.

For those of you who are (were) like me, afraid of dentistry and outcome you must read this. Having had years of not just mediocre but poor dentistry performed and inconsiderate dentists I had put of my dental work many years, until that moment I could no longer put it off. As the wife of a skilled surgeon I know the poor work that often is performed in many specialties and I finally returned to see Dr. Chal who was the only one I trusted. He and his staff held my hand throughout the process and not only helped me overcome my fears but gave me the ultimate beautiful smile I had hoped to receive…
