AACD 2014: Great Education in an Amazing Destination

“The AACD Annual session— fun to travel, meet new people and learn from the best dentists! It’s the No. 1 CE experience every year.” — John Downey, DDS


When you join AACD in Orlando, you’ll have the opportunity to learn new skills and techniques through hands-on workshops and lectures, while being inspired by all of the positive energy surrounding what will be a historical event for AACD. What will you get in Orlando? • New techniques to put into practice the following Monday. • An all-inclusive educational experience. You never pay extra for any courses, workshops, or general sessions. Plus, you receive breakfast and lunch on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (How many other conferences offer you this?) and a grand Welcome Reception to kick things off. • Networking opportunities. Are you a dentist looking for a lab tech? Or a lab tech looking for a dentist? In Orlando, you’ll have your pick of the best. • The chance to see the latest dental technologies and products in the AACD Exhibit Hall. • The opportunity to give back by participating in the Celebration of Smiles Fundraiser and the Give Back a Smile Silent Auction. • Five-star treatment by AACD Staff. • A chance to look back and see how far cosmetic dentistry has come, in addition to meeting some of the members who made the AACD what it is today. • Access to all of Orlando’s most popular attractions, and the chance to stay at one of the most beautiful resorts in Florida. Bring your whole family—this is one trip you won’t forget. • For those who love exercise, the AACD will offer a special fitness class pool-side. • The opportunity to earn up to 30 CE. • Cake.

A Special Tribute to AACD PAST PRESIDENT AND ACCREDITED FELLOW Dr. Jeffrey Golub-Evans

In Orlando, the AACD will pay tribute to the late AACD Past President Dr. Jeffrey Golub-Evans, who practiced at the New York Center of Cosmetic Dentistry, and was the founder of the New York Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Since his passing, Dr. Golub-Evans has generated many thoughtful comments and remembrances from AACD members and others who were a part of his life. Please join AACD in honoring this special individual and his contributions to the Academy.

The AACD 2014 educational program is designed to elevate the clinical skills of all dental professionals. “I always pick up pearls that I can take back to my practice and implement right away.” — Dr. Angela Lueck AACD Members say that the annual scientific sessions offer a higher level of learning than most general dentistry conferences. If you’re looking to be challenged, AACD 2014 is the place for you. In Orlando, you’ll learn about cosmetic dentistry’s latest advancements, emerging technologies, new clinical techniques, practice management strategies, practice marketing tips, and much more. The annual scientific session is also a great place to bond with your dental team. This year, AACD will introduce team-based courses to encourage cohesive learning. Other courses on this year’s lineup will benefit dental professionals of all backgrounds—dentists, laboratory technicians, hygienists, students, and more.

“After almost 45 years of practice, I can still learn how to do dentistry better—so hopefully each year, I get a little bit better.” — Dr. Joseph Heher
