The 36th Annual American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) Scientific Session in Orlando April 22 – 25 will continue its tradition of providing both well-known and up-and-coming educators, along with an assortment of fun and fabulous networking and social activities for dental professionals, all while offering several key ugrades to attendees and exhibitors alike this year.

“The AACD is constantly evolving as is our profession, and luckily there is tremendous loyalty and willingness of our senior leadership to invest their time and passion to ensure that our annual event is a flagship global conference that dental industry leaders seek to be involved with.” -Sandra Hulac, DDS, FAACD."

The AACD 2020 Scientific Session in Orlando continues the AACD’s tradition of top-tier education and social events, while also bringing new educators and offerings to the table in 2020.

EXPANDED EDUCATION

INSTAFAMOUS

Thursday | April 23

 

Cosmetic dentistry continues to increase its social media presence, and the Instafamous session at AACD will bring dentistry’s social media giants together for a fast-paced lecture and Q&A forum that promises insights to implement as soon as attendees return to work on Monday. Instafamous features four educators, each speaking for 35 minutes with a 5-minute Q&A. Attendees will join Maxim Belograd, DDS, Courtney Lavigne, DMD, FAGD, AACD, Eduardo De Aguilar, DDS, and Miguel Ortiz, DMD, as they explore a variety of topics in a quickfire format. Photo ops with the presenters will follow in the exhibit hall!

MAXIMIZED WORKSHOP OPPORTUNITIES

The AACD is optimizing your CE dollars by maximizing your workshop opportunities. To ensure all attendees get a chance to attend a hands-on workshop we're saving space for you! All attendees will initially be limited to 2 hands-on workshops at registration. 

“Because of this new feature, there are more opportunities for more attendees to get into hands-on workshops. In fact, there are are plenty of HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS STILL AVAILABLE, so lock in your spot now!"

OBSERVATION SEATING IN HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS

For those who don't need the hands-on training but who still wish to take advantage of the education offered at AACD’s hands-on workshops, observation seating has been added to the 2020 Scientific Session this year, in order to offer more room for more attendees to receive CE credit

MARKETING EXPERTS PANEL

Friday | April 24

A marketing panel course has been added to this year’s scientific session for those interested in improving their marketing and promotion efforts. Moderated by AACD’s Chief Marketing Officer, Michael DiFrisco, CAE, and including four dental marketing experts, this session will offer attendees ideas for social, web, and overall practice promotion. And for those attendees who are contemplating buying, selling, or expanding a practice in the future, the new practice transition course will likely be of interest.

 

NEW WAYS TO GIVE BACK

9-HOLE SHOTGUN TOURNAMENT

Wednesday | April 22

Attendees can play a round of golf before the Scientific Session kicks off as AACD offers a 9-hole shotgun tournament at the Shingle Creek Golf Club. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the AACD’s Charitable Foundation’s Give Back a Smile program, which connects adult survivors of domestic and/or sexual violence with volunteer cosmetic dentists who restore their smiles.

STEPS FOR SMILES FUNDRAISER

Friday | April 24

Attendees will be encouraged to get in their steps while supporting Give Back a Smile for Friday’s Steps for Smiles event.

EXHIBT HALL OVERHAUL

iEXPERT EXPERIENCE

New in the Exhibit Hall in 2020, the iExpert Experience will bring mini hands-on learning opportunities to attendees in various locations around the Exhibit Hall. These quick listen-and-learn sessions have been designed for key opinion leaders to share their knowledge in a relaxed setting.
