An Invitation  from our President:

President – 2023/2024

Welcome! As a new member of the Academy, you can begin to benefit from all the Academy has to offer.

Our ANNUAL CONFERENCE continues to be one of the best values in postgraduate education, including excellent programs for our spouses and children. Dues-paying members receive a significant discount on conference registration fees.

The SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES facilitated by the Academy continue to expand into more areas of the world including under-served people here at home. Many of you have made a significant difference in serving and sharing your talents with those in need.

FELLOWSHIP with professional colleagues is another benefit of Academy membership. Whether at the Annual Conference or participating in service projects, we develop strong bonds with our fellow volunteers, as well as with those whom we serve.

STUDENT participation increased dramatically over the past few years before the COVID shut-downs. We are revitalizing student chapters in many dental schools across the U.S.  These students benefit from Dr. Christensen’s C.E. videos and Academy scholarships. Access to mentors through our mentor program allows younger dentists access to the wisdom of more experienced practitioners.

In short, this is a unique organization that provides unequaled opportunities to enhance your career and give back to your profession. Your membership is appreciated, and we encourage you to JOIN the Academy or renew your membership TODAY.
