The AACD is Here for You: COVID 19 Resources for You and Your Dental Team


While the AACD's main priority is the welfare of our people, we remain open for business and resolute in delivering on the AACD mission of advancing excellence in the art and science of comprehensive cosmetic dentistry and encouraging the highest standards of ethical conduct and responsible patient care.

In our 35-year history, we've weathered the storms of 9-11, the War Against Terrorism, and eight recessions. Today, we remain at your service. Our team is operating remotely and communicating with members and stakeholders every weekday. Our boards and committees continue to meet and make future-focused decisions on behalf of our membership

Right now, we want to make sure our members have the resources they need to navigate this unprecedented time. So we've gathered them here and will continue to add to them as they become available. We want to help keep you and your business safe and put the COVID-19 virus behind us, not knowing how much time that will take.

But it will end. And demand will return.

Thank you for letting the AACD be a part of your world. And when this ends, let's all meet in Colorado for AACD 2021 and celebrate, high-five, hug, and make new friends. Until then, please take care of yourself!

Below, we have provided resource suggestions for navigating through this uncertain time.

Research - State of the Cosmetic Dentistry Industry Survey Report 2019

While times may be tough right now for dental professionals, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry 2019 State of the Industry Survey supports earlier data that the field of cosmetic dentistry will continue to thrive and grow. The AACD is encouraged to share the results in preparation for the period of recovery and the post-COVID demand surge, which is sure to come.

This survey of dental professionals conducted by the AACD reveals that cosmetic procedures continue to bring life and revenue to dental practices. The survey includes a snapshot of the current dentist and practice demographics, plus promising findings relating to the growth of cosmetic dentistry as a whole and can be used to make informed decisions for your practice.
