See the AACD's Best--in Seattle!

SEATTLE (5/5/12)—The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) is giving a whole new meaning to “Seattle’s Best.”

After two years on the east coast, the AACD will host the 29th Annual Scientific Session in Seattle April 24-27, 2013. The session already has a promising lineup of educators, workshops and social events guaranteed to educate, connect, and inspire attendees.

“Seattle will build off of this year’s successes in DC by offering more live education and workshops that are guaranteed to do more than just give them new skills,” said Incoming AACD President Ron Goodlin. “It’s an experience that will constantly remind them that they chose an amazing field to practice in—and make them even more excited about helping their patients.”
Headliners for the event include:
  • Betsy Bakeman, DDS 
  • David Garber, DMD
  • John Kois, DMD
  • Jacinthe Paquette, DDS
  • Maurice Salama, DMD
  • Cherilyn Sheets, DDS
  • Frank Spear, DDS
Notable course topics include whitening, posterior aesthetics, implant removables, single tooth peri-implant esthetics, and interdisciplinary dentistry.
While the AACD is changing its coastal location for the 29th Annual Scientific Session, attendees shouldn’t expect that the quality of education will change. Tuition costs for the session also will remain the same as the previous year.

“Seattle is going to have a great vibe,” said Goodlin. “After two great meetings in DC and Boston, we’re expecting that a lot of our members will join us out west. We’re really excited about all of the great education, camaraderie, and networking we can offer them—in a dynamic city everyone is going to love.”

The AACD will host its session at the Washington State Convention Center, which is located in the heart of downtown Seattle and within walking distance of many restaurants and shops.
More information about lodging, travel, and courses will be posted soon on the AACD website. Keep checking for updates.
