Every year, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s Professional Education Committee (PEC) offers dental professionals comprehensive cosmetic dentistry education at the annual AACD conference.
The conference offers three daily themes: design, implementation, and realization. According to Professional Education Committee Chair Robert Ritter, DMD, “The themes were selected because they can help guide the dentist and laboratory technician in the overall process of framing the patient for a new smile.” Design, implementation, and realization will provide a unified structure for the conference; they represent a process that is sequential and cumulative, so each day will build on the knowledge gained the previous day.
The educators, and the topics they address, will follow that path from design on day one, to implementation on day two, and realization on day three. Featured presenters include Bill Robbins, DDS, and David Sarver, DMD, on day one; Michael Pikos, DDS, and Andrea Ricci, DMD, on day two; and Markus Blatz, DMD, Gerard Chiche, DDS, and John Kois, DMD, on day three.
All of the courses offered at AACD 2016 are intended to elevate the clinical skills of all conference attendees. The AACD will also offer accreditation track courses. Attendees can begin the process of AACD accreditation beforehand by taking the written exam in Toronto.
This year’s conference will be held in Toronto at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Attendees may need to use a passport to travel. Conference goers will want to apply for or renew their passport well in advance to ensure smooth travels to Toronto.
