Responsibilities of Fellowship

Conferring of Fellowship in the American College of Dentists may be a high-point in a career, but it is not an endpoint. While Fellowship symbolizes leadership and meritorious achievement, it also defines a standard for future endeavors. At a minimum it is expected that a Fellow will:

Uphold and promote the principles and objectives of the College;
Strive for personal and professional improvement;
Continue to contribute to organized dentistry and the community;
Participate in College events at Section, Regency, and national levels;
Regularly nominate qualified dentists for Fellowship.


Please consider nominating an exceptional colleague for Fellowship in the College. Nominations may be made by any Fellow in good standing. Nominations are complete when both the Fellowship Nomination and the Professional and Biographical Profile Forms have been submitted. Please contact the Executive Office at [email protected] or 301-977-3223 with any questions you might have.

For downloadable forms, please contact Stephen Froehlich at [email protected].

For ACD 2024, all nominations must be complete by January 15, 2024!
