“I would highly recommend the AACD Scientific Session to any dental student looking to enhance their knowledge in the field of esthetic dentistry. How many dental students' can say they've learned from specialists such as Fahl, Kois, and Spear? The wealth of knowledge I acquired is immeasurable and I am already looking forward to next year! I had never been to the AACD's Annual Session before, but I can say without a doubt I will be back. Orlando has already made its way onto my calendar for next year; two weeks before graduating with that DDS!”
-- Tara Ferris, Marquette University dental student and past APEX Award recipient
