“AACD is my community. I’ve formed close personal and professional bonds with many fellow AACD members…it’s the time with my colleagues and friends – in the hallways and at social events – that I cherish the most.”
Marilyn Calvo, DDS
“AACD’s annual meeting is the best of the year for esthetic dentistry. If you only go to the annual meeting, it justifies the membership. Joining is a personal decision, but AACD just keeps getting better and better... don’t miss out!"
