AACD Con•tin•u•um: Confidence. Predictability. Responsible Esthetics.


AACD Con•tin•u•um is our latest educational initiative intended to help members strengthen their skills and prepare for Accreditation. You’ll learn from top Academy educators about topics that have a direct influence on your AACD Accreditation goal or that will enhance your clinical performance so that you can offer your patents better and more predictable results.

This series of four intensive, hands-on workshops cover topics including designing the smile, bonding with composite, performing anterior esthetics, and replacing a missing tooth in the esthetic zone. Members are welcome to register for individual courses or the whole series, but space is extremely limited. Click here for more information.
