ACD in 2024 and Beyond

We will create excitement by:

Promoting the successful and impactful activities that support our mission, carrying out our new strategic goals, and making it clear to all generations of dentists that the College represents the “Conscience of Dentistry.”

The Stage is Set for the ACD 2024 Annual Meeting and Convocation!

New Orleans is still the location, but the historic Roosevelt Hotel is the new venue for ACD 2024. Originally constructed in 1893, the Roosevelt’s timeless elegance is a perfect backdrop for welcoming new Fellows and celebrating our history and mission.

“Philanthropy—investments in project and process design is to improve the quality of life for generations yet to come. The impact is often difficult to understand and often impossible to judge. Philanthropy is speculation. The drive is fueled by a desire to move humanity forward.”

Steven D. Chan, Past President of the ACD and of the ACD Foundation
