His extensive training in studio art and his passion for dental esthetics have led him to pursue accreditation with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Dr. Harris says, “The most exciting and rewarding aspect of dentistry for me is the capacity to change lives one smile at a time by creating natural beauty through art and science.” Dr. Harris’ dedication to cosmetic dentistry begins with compassion for his patients and whole body health and wellness. He delivers the highest quality of care possible and provides maximum attention to detail. Dr. Harris’ hobbies include oil painting and playing drums.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is the world’s largest international dental organization dedicated to advancing excellence in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry and encouraging the highest standards of ethical conduct and patient care through responsible esthetics.
Accreditation in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry involves a rigorous clinical testing process. Candidates begin with a written examination and then progress to a series of clinical cases. Finally, accreditation is achieved after passing an oral examination. There are fewer than 500 AACD Accredited Members in the world.
Dr. Ethan Harris has begun this process, which typically takes years to complete, and has had his work approved by the Academy and its standard of excellence.
