The Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry (jCD) is a peer-reviewed journal. The AACD’s flagship publication provides the latest information on current esthetic clinical treatments, dental technology, laboratory technician techniques, and more from the profession’s leading interdisciplinary specialists. Voted AACD's #1 member benefit and one of the industry’s leading publications, members receive the jCD in both a printed and digital format.
Successful professionals are also lifelong scholars, following the literature, attending workshops and scientific sessions, networking with colleagues, and learning every day. That's why the leaders in cosmetic dentistry belong to AACD and never miss an issue of the jCD.
The mission of the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry is to educate AACD members, and other professionals in the field, on the art and science of cosmetic dentistry. We will endeavor to do this by publishing well-researched, peer-reviewed articles accompanied by high-quality comprehensive clinical imagery. The objective is to enhance readers' knowledge and skills while showcasing the latest cosmetic techniques and procedures. The Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry will strive to help readers become better clinicians, so they can offer their patients the best—and most responsible—treatment possible.
Past issues and articles from the jCD are available online for AACD members in Acrobat PDF format. View More.
