After careful deliberation, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) Board of Directors has voted to cancel the 36th Annual AACD Scientific Session, scheduled to take place April 22-25 in Orlando.
“For the last several weeks, we have been watching this situation very carefully, with our primary concern being the safety of AACD members,” said AACD President Elizabeth Bakeman, DDS, FAACD. “After monitoring the situation, consulting with attendees and corporate partners, AACD’s Board of Directors and the American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry made the decision to cancel the 2020 Scientific Session. We appreciate stakeholders’ patience and support as we work through this difficult decision. The AACD is here for you in this stressful time. As health care providers, AACD members are needed in our communities. It’s important we stay safe and well.” If you are a dental professional looking for helpful resources during this stressful time, the AACD recommends referencing the Practice Management & Marketing section of their newsroom at www.aacd.com/newsroom. Here the AACD has provided advice on how to navigate uncertain times within your dental practice.
Exhibitors and attendees are encouraged to roll over their registration to AACD 2021 Rockies, which will be held April 14-17, at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora, Colorado using this link: http://bit.ly/3bazI7m. Refunds are also being issued as requested, but the AACD does politely ask that all current registrants for AACD 2020 Orlando be patient as they are working on how to process the large volume of requests.
