What does an LVI-trained cosmetic dentist mean?

LVI dentists are unique in that they have received post-graduate, cosmetic dentistry training at the world preeminent cosmetic dentistry training facilities. For the most part, advanced cosmetic dentistry techniques are not taught in most dental schools. LVI alumni have chosen to further their education, knowledge, and experience by attending courses and seminars about the latest cosmetic dentistry techniques, treatments, and technologies. Dr. Mulder is a qualified, experienced LVI alumni who is proud to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted.
