ESCD Certification demonstrates a real commitment to developing skills in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry. Certification is awarded to those members who can show real understanding of examination, treatment planning and treatment execution as well as an interest in other aspects of dental cosmetic service and education. Dentists, dental technicians and physicians who provide evidence of special theoretical and practical knowledge in the area of cosmetic and esthetic procedures in the maxillo-facial, oral and dental field or dental laboratory techniques, can become certified and fellow members. The criteria for this evidence are determined in the guidelines for certification of the ESCD. The certification committee, formed by the elected chairman for education and his selected certified members decides upon demand in a constitutive session whether the prerequisites for obtaining the certified membership have been fulfilled by the applicant or not.
