New Year, New Member Benefits: A Message from AACD President Dwight Rickert, CDT, FAACD

January 8, 2018 by AACD Executive Office

Happy New Year from the board room. I’d like to wish you all a very prosperous 2018. 

The Academy receives many calls throughout the year from members asking about their benefits. We’ve asked questions too. The results of surveying our members and of our research has told us three main things: you want easy access to continuing education, that marketing to the patient would benefit your practice, and being part of a community would help you grow. So, we’re adding some important benefits for current and prospective members. 

You can now receive a significant amount of continuing education through our virtual campus. We’ve just added CE to courses from our Toronto Scientific Session where you can watch a course and complete the self-instruction continuing education exam at no cost to you.

Soon you will see improvements to the Find-A-Dentist website. This will improve your visibility to prospective patients online. We will also be offering an opportunity for you to try out the Smile Gallery plug-in from DoctorLogic on your practice website free for 90 days. You’ll be able to easily present before and after images of your cosmetic cases.
And soon, you’ll have our greatest resource at your fingertips—the Academy community. Our members are a wealth of knowledge, and we plan to tap into that network to help you answer questions about techniques, materials, career advice, or even a challenging case you are working on. We hope this forum provides the camaraderie of an annual session, only online.
I look forward to an exciting year for the Academy and hope to see you all at the Scientific Session in April.


Dwight Rickert, CDT, FAACD
