What is accreditation?

Earning him a reputation as among the best cosmetic dentists Charleston has to offer, Dr. John F. Rink has achieved Accredited status in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). He is the FIRST in Charleston, SC to join just over 400 dental professionals in the world who have earned the prestigious designation. Dr. Rink reached this status through a dedication to continuing education and careful adherence to clinical protocol.

Through the AACD’s advanced credentialing program for dentists and dental laboratory technicians, an Accredited Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry has completed extensive advanced training and education in cosmetic dentistry. AACD members who wish to become Accredited must undergo a three-part process consisting of a written examination, submission of clinical cases for evaluation and an oral examination.

Each candidate must also attend a series of workshops as part of the program. An Accredited Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry has successfully passed a rigorous Accreditation Board Examination of their work and cases. An Accredited Member is a dentist who has demonstrated a very high level of clinical excellence and ability in cosmetic dentistry.

Since January 2006, Dr. Rink has been on staff at the Medical University of South Carolina’s Dental School, sharing his knowledge and experience in the area of high tech dentistry, such as CAD/CAM fabrication of dental crowns, veneers and onlays with senior dental students. Through Dr. Rink’s teaching, the students have an opportunity to experience the examination, diagnosis and application of some of dentistry’s most exciting technology being applied in a private setting. 

As a proud member of the LAMB Institute, Dr. Rink has spent time in Honduras and Haiti providing dental care for those in need. This philanthropic activity allows him to use his skill to make the world a better place—one smile at a time. 

I enjoy teaching the students because it gives me the opportunity to give back to my profession in a way that will inspire and educate the soon to graduate dentist in the possibilities of modern dentistry.

YOUR TREATMENT PLAN

To Our Family of Patients,

After much thought and concern for the health of our patients and team, I would like to share with you my thoughts on how the Coronavirus outbreak in the United States can best be managed at our practice. The key issue is prevention. Social distancing is the best solution at this time to prevent the spread of the virus.

Therefore, in conjunction with the South Carolina Dental Association recommendations, I have decided to close our normal practice operation with the exception of emergency and urgent care situations, through the end of March, 2020. I will be available for you and your family for emergency and urgent needs. Please call my personal cell phone if you have any questions or if you need an office visit. I am here for you.

After we have weathered this storm, we will be here to see that you continue to have the excellent care that you and your families deserve. We thank you for the trust that you place in our practice. We look forward to a long and healthy relationship in the future.

My cell phone number: 843-224-0517

To Your Good Oral and Systemic Health!

- Dr. John F. Rink, DDS, AAACD
