Leadership Training
In an effort to build Team AACD, and offer our AACD Leaders the opportunity to grow professionally and personally, you will have the opportunity to participate in two very special courses being held at AACD 2014 in Orlando.
 
On Tuesday, April 29—a day before the official start of the 30th Anniversary AACD Scientific Session—please join the Academy for leadership and media training that will help you become a more effective leader, business owner, Academy/Foundation representative, and cosmetic dentistry advocate. Plus, you’ll earn continuing education credits for these pre-day sessions.
 
Register now and then you can add both of these training opportunities to your personal itinerary.
