The American Association of Dental Consultants makes every effort to present high caliber clinicians and non-clinical experts. The presentations of the instructors do not imply endorsement of any product, technique or service. All participants are cautioned about the risks of using new techniques especially in courses that have not provided supervised clinical experience. All presentations are in lecture format and, unless otherwise noted, represent the opinion of the speakers and not the opinion or position of the AADC, its members, companies represented by its members, Directors, or Executive Director.
