A First in the State for Dr. Noordhoek

We want to offer a huge congratulations to Dr. Rosie Noordhoek on being inducted into the American College of Surgeons (ACS)! She will be the first female oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Michigan to be accepted by the ACS. The American College of Surgeons was established in 1913 to “Improve the quality of care for the surgical patient by setting high standards for surgical education and practice.” Being an ACS Fellow means Dr. Noordhoek’s education, training, professional qualifications, surgical competence and ethical conduct have passed a rigorous evaluation and been found to be consistent with the high standards demanded by the College.

For nearly 100 years, the American College of Surgeons has led national and international initiatives to improve quality in hospitals, as well as in the more specific fields of trauma, cancer and surgical care. ACS’ enduring commitment to quality is reflected in the many initiatives that it has developed. These initiatives have measurably improved surgical quality, and have prevented complications, reduced costs and saved lives. Dr. Noordhoek is excited to join her medical colleagues to advance the surgical specialty and to be a voice for the oral and maxillofacial surgery community.

Congratulations again, Dr. Noordhoek, DDS, FACS!
