NEW YORK, N.Y., USA: Next year, AACD 2016 is jumping the border — to Toronto. Already coming together, the lineup of progressive, innovative educational programming being planned for AACD 2016 promises to make attendees feel light years ahead in their profession. AACD has a reputation for always trying to outdo itself to bring members and attendees the best in cosmetic dentistry education.

For the 2016 annual meeting, organizers are committed to continuing to build on the meeting’s track record. In that vein, the 32nd Annual Scientific Session will have three themed days that will progress in subject and content.

Themes of “design,” “implementation” and “realization” will bracket comprehensive, cumulative sessions designed to create positive influence on your practice the moment you’re back on the job.

The AACD Professional Education Committee reminds you that a passport will be needed for AACD 2016, “but you will not regret the international travel after you profit from everything the conference and Toronto have to offer.”

On the shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto is Canada’s largest city and home to a diverse population of 2.8 million. It is the fourth largest city in North America and leads in sustainability efforts. Toronto is a global center for business, finance and the arts and is consistently ranked as one of the world’s most livable cities. The city is hosting the Pan-American Games this summer.

Easy to find an AACD dentist

The AACD recently unveiled new member-directory features that will make finding an AACD member dentist easier than ever.

The directly has a simplified user interface that enables prospective patients to easily navigate to find a dentist or lab technician based on member level, location or name. The search results display links to individual member profiles, which can be customized in a number of ways.

A basic, claimed-profile page can be customized to include a photo, an embedded Google map, contact information and limited patient reviews and scores. AACD members who want to further customize their claimed-profile page can include an expanded biography, additional details about their practice, links to their website and social media accounts, and before-and-after photos of their work. With a pro account, it’s possible to include unlimited patient reviews posted to multiple review sites instantly.

Just as important, according to the AACD, are the improvements behind the memory-directly profiles. Regardless of the amount of customization, all of the profies are designed with the latest in search-engine-optimization strategies. This means that profiles will show up in all the major Internet searches, making it even easier for prospective patients to find AACD dentists online.
