Dr. Shapiro is one of only two candidates for accreditation from the Academy in South Florida and is the only candidate from Miami-Dade County on the academy's website.
Dr. Shapiro remarked, "The process of accreditation from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is extremely thorough and requires that an accreditation candidate demonstrate proficiency on actual patients performing a number of different cosmetic procedures to the satisfaction of a board of examiners."
He further remarked, "For a dentist just going through the process it requires an intense amount of focus on their cosmetic dentistry practice and their techniques. This is not a program for the general dentist who only dabbles in cosmetic dentistry but rather for dentists whose focus is on cosmetic dentistry."
