AACD Accreditation & Fellowship

What is the AACD Dental Dojo?

An intense mentoring and a collaborative cohort community.

Fire up your desire for clinical excellence with our NEW mentoring program that boosts members who are interested in the Accreditation process—or simply want to advance their dental knowledge and clinical skills. This program gives you everything you need to succeed as a dental professional while obtaining top-notch education.

  • A private, online community where Dojo participants exchange ideas, tips, and questions with one another.
  • A year-long curriculum designed specifically for advanced cosmetic education providing CE credits. 
  • Limited to 30 participants per cohort.


AACD Dental Dojo Structure

The AACD Dental Dojo is a year-long program to cover core/foundational topics and to build a baseline for the clinical skill set required for success. Participants join at a kick-off reception at the Annual Scientific Session and the full year of education follows. Online courses are held and are mixed with educational content recorded and curated for this purpose. During this year long experience, a private Dental Dojo discussion board will be available on the AACD CEntral online learning platform, which will facilitate meaningful interactions of cohorts between sessions. For the pilot program, your professional development investment is $2,995, or six payments commencing on April ending in September.
