You'll hear AACD Accredited members say it's not about the destination, it's about the journey. But what do they really mean? What is Accreditation REALLY about?

  • It's about limitless professional growth and earning potential
  • It's about pushing yourself to be your best, always
  • It's about developing relationships, with your mentor and your like-minded and driven dental community
At the end of the day, AACD Accreditation is about confidence. Gaining confidence in yourself and in your clinical skills, and inspiring confidence in your patients.
