The Hornbrook Group and the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics form exclusive partnership regarding live-patient, hands-on education.

CHICAGO--The Hornbrook Group's Center for Advanced Clinical Education and The Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics have announced that they have entered into a an exclusive partnership naming The Hornbrook Group as ACE's recommended provider of live-patient, hands-on education.

In an effort to provide training resources to those applying for Fellowship in the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics (Fellowship), a status requiring a commitment to higher learning, attention to detail and clinical excellence, The Hornbrook Group's Center for Advanced Clinical Education will act as a training facility to prepare ACE members to meet the standards set by ACE for Fellowship.

The Hornbrook Group's Center for Advanced Clinical Education is an internationally recognized advanced continuing dental education program.

The Hornbrook Group's wide range of aesthetic live-patient, hands-on and supplemental theory courses offers Fellowship applicants the clinical training they need to meet the requirements of Fellowship which include extensive testing and case submission.

For those ACE members that have already received Fellowship status, The Hornbrook Group will offer a wide range of advanced courses needed by ACE Fellows to maintain their Fellowship status. Finally, ACE--a community of dental professionals dedicated to excellence in patient care through education--will make it convenient for The Hornbrook Group faculty to achieve the esteemed status of Fellowship by conducting exams at specified Hornbrook Group Programs throughout the 2007 course schedule.

"Partnering with The Hornbrook Group as trainers for our members just made perfect sense because of the shared missions of both organizations--to further clinical excellence", said Dr. Michael Maroon, co-founder of ACE.

"ACE needed to provide our members a training resource to assist those members wanting to achieve Fellowship to further our mission of setting clinical standards for our patients. We have always been firm believer that live-patient hands-on courses are one of the best ways to learn the complicated theories of Smile Design, Occlusion and Full Mouth Reconstruction."

"We at The Hornbrook Group are honored to have been named by ACE as their preferred provider not only to meet the demands of Fellowship but actively participate in furthering their mission as an organization" said, Dr. David Hornbrook, CEO of The Hornbrook Group.
