Dr. Zase was the 2015 recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award by the AACD. He is also the President of the New England Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
He has developed numerous techniques and instruments that are currently used in modern cosmetic dentistry. He was inducted into the Dental Hall of Fame by the genR8TNext Internet dental community (now the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics). He has also been granted fellowships in the American College of Dentists (FACD), the Pierre Fauchard Academy, and the International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics (FADFE), and the AGD has honored him with the Lifetime Learning and Service Recognition Award for his contributions to dentistry and dental education. He was just selected by Dentistry Today magazine as one of the Top Clinicians in Dental Continuing Education for the tenth year in a row.
