Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
It’s difficult, and it’s life-changing, but Tara Hardin, DDS, can tell you that completing the Accreditation process in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) is worth all of the hard work.
Dr. Hardin has earned Accredited status in the AACD—an accomplishment completed by only 405 dental professionals in the history of the association, showcasing her commitment to excellence in the dental profession.
She reached this achievement after completing a rigorous credentialing process including a written examination, the submission of clinical cases for examination and an oral examination.
Dr. Hardin graduated from Furman University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1996 and went on to receive her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Ohio State University in 2000. She continued her passion for advanced training at The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies earning a Fellowship with LVI.
She is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association, and Cincinnati Dental Society, and several sleep organizations. She is devoted to continuing education on facial esthetics, cosmetic dentistry, TMJ therapy, and sleep apnea. She lectures on laser dentistry and is a key opinion leader for Philips.
When Dr. Hardin is away from the office she enjoys spending time with her husband, Sean and their children, Lillian, Carson, and Kayla.
Dr. Hardin practices in Mason, Ohio with her father, Dr. Gary Hardin.
The AACD Accreditation process serves to set the standard for excellence in cosmetic dentistry. The process encourages further education, interaction with like-minded colleagues, and the opportunity for professional growth. Accreditation requires dedication to continuing education and responsible patient care.
“We congratulate Dr. Hardin for achieving AACD Accreditation,” said Mr. Nelson Rego, CDT, chairperson for AACD Accreditation. “While the Accreditation process is rigorous, it’s the ultimate display of one’s skills and commitment to the field of cosmetic dentistry.”
Dr. Hardin will join 16 other newly-Accredited dental professionals on stage to receive their recognition and award at AACD 2014 in Orlando April 30 – May 3.
