What is an Accredited Cosmetic Dentist



Dr. Arthur Chal is a leading cosmetic dentist. The first dentist in the Phoenix area to be accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Chal is also a past president of that academy and known internationally for his beautiful work and meticulous attention to detail. He has a long list of credentials, honors, and achievements.

The credentials are important. Accreditation is a credential developed by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry to help the consumer identify competent cosmetic dentists. It’s important because most dentists are not artistically inclined and have not taken the trouble to learn the highly specialized skills required to create beautiful smiles. For those who are, they can participate in the educational programs of the AACD, take their written, clinical, and oral examinations, and become accredited.

But the credentials are important only in the context of the larger question: What can Dr. Chal do for you? Let’s answer that question with an illustration using a case that is representative of what he does regularly in his office.

Her name is Pat. Her husband came to Dr. Chal first, for a full-mouth reconstruction and smile makeover. Pat’s request was straightforward — she was 59 years old and wanted a beautiful new smile that was uniquely hers — feminine, delicate, stunning, and more attractive than her husband’s. This kind of desire is typical of anyone who wants a smile makeover, but it isn’t always expressed. Dr. Chal understands. No two people have the same appearance, preferences, and personality, and thus every smile should be different. Dentists aren’t trained to be that aesthetically sensitive, and the typical dentist approaches making a new smile very much like fixing a broken tooth. But Dr. Chal creates a work of art, unique for each person.

The gorgeous results speak for themselves. Pat is now “59 and fabulous” and grateful for her new look.
