MADISON, Wis. (3/11/13)—Advanced tuition rates for AACD 2013, the annual meeting of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), will end April 5 at 5 p.m. CT. Many courses and all social events are still available.
Those who register before April 5 will receive $150 off of their tuition price. Other discounts are offered for first-time lab technicians and first-time attendees. Non-members who register for AACD 2013 will receive a one-year membership in AACD included with their tuition. For a full tuition schedule, visit www.aacdconference.com.
AACD 2013 will take place April 24-27 in Seattle, with headliners including Drs. Frank Spear, John Kois, Maurice Salama, and many more. The conference kicks off April 24 with an opening general session, followed by a Welcome Reception at the Experience Music Project. Both are included in attendees' tuition fees.
"One of the things that makes AACD's meeting unique is that we do not charge for individual workshops and lectures—everything is included," said AACD President Ron Goodlin. "Additionally, if they register for our meeting next year—AACD 2014 in Orlando—while in Seattle, they will save $300."
The conference also provides members with priceless networking opportunities, including access to the AACD Exhibit Hall and exhibit hall socials, breakfasts and lunches.
Aside from the annual meeting, other cost savings the AACD offers its members include free access to online educational providers DentalXP and HDiQ Dental, and discounts on many products and services. When purchased separately, dental professionals pay more than $490 for access to DentalXP per year. Member dentists also receive free customizable patient education videos that they can share on their practice websites, social media or chairside.
AACD members also receive sizeable discounts on dental products and supplies. Through AACD Buying Power, members can save money on products and equipment they are already buying—which can amount to thousands of dollars per year.
"When you join AACD, you're not only receiving the benefit of being a part of a professional dental community, you're also benefiting financially," Goodlin added. "AACD saves its members thousands of dollars per year—you just have to take full advantage of your benefits!"
