Dr. Swearingen and Staff Go to New Orleans for His Accreditation Award

Dr. Swearingen and his staff recently returned from New Orleans where he received recognition and an award for achieving "Accreditation" status with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). This is a special honor achieved by only a small number of dentists in the world. The AACD has been in existence since 1984. They have just celebrated their 24th anniversary. During that period only 286 dentists worldwide have been able to become accredited out of a membership of over 8000 dentists. Needless to say, the staff and Dr. Swearingen were very excited when he was recognized by his peers at the award dinner. Dr. Swearingen had worked for nearly 5 years on various types of cosmetic procedures as well as a written and oral exam to achieve this award.

While they were there they were also able to see post-Katrina New Orleans and were pleasantly surprised at the progress that appears to be being made there. Various people indicated that the city was about 80% of normal. Hopefully, that beautiful and exciting city will be fully recovered very soon!
