MADISON, Wis. (11/29/12)—Those who haven't registered yet for AACD 2013 in Seattle should do so quickly because course selection for the conference opens Dec. 7 at 8 a.m. CT.
The conference, April 24-27 in Seattle at the Washington State Convention Center, will offer hands-on workshops and lectures and give attendees the opportunity to earn up to 24 certified continuing education credits. They can also take the Accreditation Written Exam on April 25 to begin the process toward earning the AACD's credential.
"We encourage everyone who's interested in AACD 2013 to sign up as soon as possible," said AACD President Ron Goodlin. "Course selection opens Dec. 7, and we are expecting that a lot of workshops featuring our headliners will fill right away."
Headliners at this year's meeting include Drs. Frank Spear, John Kois, Newton Fahl, David Garber, Maurice Salama, Betsy Bakeman, Jacinthe Paquette and Cherilyn Sheets.
In addition to lectures and educational events, attendees will have access to many social and networking events. A welcome reception will take place April 24 at the Experience Music Project Museum, which is near the base of the Seattle Space Needle.
Last year's event took place in Washington, DC, and the hope is that many dental professionals will embrace the West Coast location, especially those who are located internationally in the Pacific Rim.
"After two years on the east coast, we're ready to bring great cosmetic dentistry education back out west," Goodlin added. "Not only will we offer exceptional education, but Seattle is an amazing city everyone must visit. If you come to Seattle, you'll walk away with a new skillset, a renewed perspective on the field of cosmetic dentistry, and a lot of new friends."
