Dental Associations

There are many benefits to joining a dental association or society.  The largest dental association in the world is the “American Dental Association”  According to their statistics approx. 7 out of every 10 dentists in the United States are members.  There is no question they are the largest.  There are also many large dental organizations and associations that are focused around certain areas of the dental business.  For example, the largest Association of dentists focused on cosmetic dentistry and appearance related dentistry is the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, AACD.  They are dedicated specifically to advancing the art and science of cosmetic dentistry.  They provide CE “continuing education” opportunities to their members and encourage ongoing research in the field of cosmetic dentistry. They provide a very valuable service to not only their members but to the public as well.  Making informed and educated decisions about your smile starts with education and the AACD is very strong proponent of continuing education.  They also have a very intensive credentialing program called Accreditation which sets a recognizable standard of excellence.  Members who receive this accreditation must pass a rigorous Board Examination.  For more information about the AACD visit  the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Website
