AACD Welcome Reception: A Night at the Museum


Making history is just one of the many things the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) will do at this year’s 28th Annual Scientific Session in Washington, DC, May 2-5.
The AACD will kick off the session with “A Night at the Museum,” a welcome reception for all attendees, at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History on May 2. AACD members will see history come to life as they mingle with colleagues and explore the museum’s exhibits, all of which will open for members that evening. The reception will take place from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., giving members plenty of time to peruse exhibits featuring dinosaurs, Ancient Egypt, and the Hope Diamond, while enjoying complimentary beer and wine.
Other history-making events at the conference include a special opening “PowerSession” featuring Drs. David Garber, Christian Coachman and Eric Van Dooren. The session will take place on May 2, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and will focus on smile design approaches. The AACD will award CE credit to any dental professional who attends.
The AACD also will honor the Accreditation Class of 2012, during the Celebration of Excellence Gala on May 5. This year, the AACD is welcoming 12 individuals to the ranks of Accredited member status and two to Accredited fellow status, an accomplishment that will prove to be a pivotal moment in these individuals’ professional and personal history.
“DC will elevate your passion for what’s most important—the smile,” said Dr. John K. Sullivan, AACD president. “We can give you the tools you need to take your dental skills to the next level. We educate, we inspire, and we connect you with the best. Join us in DC—and help us make history.”
