Achieve Your Goals with AACD Accreditation

If you want to practice the same beautiful dentistry that's presented at AACD Annual Scientific Sessions year after year, you're going to want to map out your goals, then check out how AACD Accreditation can help you meet them. The AACD Accreditation process is your personalized plan of action toward clinical excellence, profitability, and personal fulfillment. How does it work? The Accreditation process allows you to focus on immediate and intermediate goals that will get you started and keep you headed toward your ultimate goal, AKA, your stretch goal. Here’s how to get started.

Brainstorm Long-Term Goals

First, you have to set your long-term, or stretch, goals. These are your long-term objectives. Maybe it is AACD Accreditation, or perhaps it's bigger than that. Want to own your own fee-for-service practice? Become a world-renowned educator? Setting stretch goals encourages you to think BIG, so start here.


Check Off Short-Term Goals

Immediate goals, or short-term goals, are smaller goals that can be accomplished in a week or so and that will move you toward your long-term goals. This is where the process of Accreditation helps to set a roadmap for your success. 

Immediate Accreditation Goals:

Keep the Momentum with Intermediate Goals

Intermediate goals are more broad than your immediate goals, with somewhere between a monthly or yearly time frame. The Accreditation process also lays out intermediate goals as checkpoints to keep you on track toward clinical excellence, profitability, and personal fulfillment.

Intermediate Accreditation Goals:

  • Get in touch with an Accreditation mentor.
  • Start working on and submitting clinical cases.
  • Establish life-long relationships with like-minded professionals who have similar goals.

Reach Your Goals and Share the Journey

By completing the Accreditation process, you’ll be well on your way to doing the highest quality dentistry, and arriving at your desired destination of clinical excellence, profitability, and personal fulfillment.
