AADC was founded in 1979 with the belief that an experienced dental benefits consultant can provide valuable insight and input regarding provider network issues, dental claim policy and standards of care, dental plan coverage and utilization management. AADC's goal is to connect dentists and others involved in dental benefits consulting and administration, to identify and promote best practices and to advance education and promote a common base of knowledge for consistent, evidence-based plan and claims evaluations. 

AADC strives to create vehicles for communication among its members and between members and the association. It also hopes to raise awareness within the insurance industry of the value of dental benefits consultants and the range of services that can be provided and enhanced through experienced benefits consulting. By encouraging certification and ongoing professional development, AADC promotes qualifications which serve the best interests of patients, plans, policy holders and the dental profession. Most importantly, AADC is committed to promoting competency and up-to-date knowledge among dental benefits consultants. Certified Dental Consultants are recognized as leaders in their field.
