Dr. Corky Willhite has had a special interest in Cosmetic Dentistry since this rapidly progressing field was first being recognized. After graduating from the LSU School of Dentistry in 1979, he continued his education, taking time out of his private practice with a goal: to provide state-of-the-art cosmetic dental care. A growing reputation for excellence led to his being asked to share his expertise with colleagues. Now he lectures frequently to dental professionals across the country and internationally.
Dr. Willhite is also very active in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and received his Accreditation in 1991. The AACD is the largest organization dedicated to Cosmetic Dentistry in the world. In 1997, he was proud to become a Fellow, one of only about 50 out of over 8,000 academy members. He has served on their Board of Governors (currently the American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry) and spent years as an Examiner for Accreditation. He is also a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry and has served as a chair for many committees, and as a board member and an officer of various dental associations. Being active in these organizations, as well as teaching other dentists through lectures and hands-on courses, keeps Dr. Willhite up-to-date on the latest developments in dentistry.
