American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry building About the AACD
In December of 1984, 60 dentists answered the call of AACD founder, Dr. Jack Kammer and co-founder Dr. Jeff Morley. This visionary group met in Las Vegas to create an organization devoted to the art and science of cosmetic dentistry. From this small gathering of dedicated individuals, the AACD has matured into the world's largest organization for cosmetic dental professionals. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry® (AACD) is dedicated to advancing excellence in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry and encouraging the highest standards of ethical conduct and responsible patient care.
