Excellence Through Education

AACD Dental Continuing Education

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry's mission is to promote continuing dental education by offering superior educational opportunities to dental professionals, such as our annual scientific session, virtual dental education courses, the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry, and various events throughout the year.
Our continuing dental education credits are highly valued in the industry. The focus of our annual scientific session is to allow practitioners to exchange new ideas and receive interdisciplinary and actionable information on a number of topics including:
  • clinical procedures,
  • materials and methods,
  • cosmetic dental practice development, and
  • self-enrichment.
In addition, dentists may earn AGD continuing dental education credits as well as credit towards achieving Accredited status in the AACD. Our Accredited dentists can earn up to three times as much as a general dentist for cosmetic dentistry procedures.
