This is possibly why peers have chosen Dr. Milnar as a TOP Dentist in MPLS/St. Paul Magazine four times.

Accreditation in the AACD was an investment of nearly 400 hours in specialized education, cosmetic case development, and scrutinized review by an international panel of dentists who hold fellowship positions in the organization. The entire process, from declaration of intent to final case presentation, took nearly three years. It’s common for 30 or 40 dentists to present each year at the International AACD Scientific Conference and only two or three achieve their accreditation.
