Industry Leaders Working Together to Promote Excellence in Dentistry

About ASDA

The American Society for Dental Aesthetics Welcomes You

Welcome to the American Society for Dental Aesthetics (ASDA)! We invite you to take a look around our website to learn more about our history and our important role in the cosmetic dentistry community.

Our organization was established nearly forty years ago by the "Father of Aesthetic Dentistry," Dr. Irwin Smigel, and was the first aesthetic dental society of its kind. Together, we are cosmetic dentists who are committed to excellence in our field through continuing education. For decades, we have facilitated the exchange of best practices and innovations in cosmetic and restorative dentistry through our engaging learning events. We are always interested in growing our member base, and we always welcome exceptional professionals who share our passion for expert care and education.

Our Upcoming Conference: Oct. 22-25, 2014

The 2014 ASDA conference will be held at the Four Seasons in Baltimore, October 22-25. This event will be a continuation of the high level of instruction upon which our society's reputation has been built. Conference attendees can learn and relax at the five star hotel, which is conveniently located on Baltimore's harbor.  Between sessions, you can enjoy beautiful views of the water and city from the hotel, and take walks to nearby neighborhoods like historic Fell's Point, culturally rich Inner Harbor, and the lively restaurants of Little Italy. Please visit the program schedule page to view a full list of activities.

Sharing Knowledge with Industry Leaders

ASDA's goal is to foster learning among our national network of cosmetic dentists. By enriching the skills of our members, they can better serve their patient communities. We strive to reach these goals through our unique training conferences.

At each annual ASDA conference, you can expect to learn the latest developments in dentistry techniques, technology and business during engaging sessions led by nationally recognized experts. Our learning environments are dynamic. They are small in size and feature interactive teaching styles. Unlike large events where you can expect to sit passively in an audience hall, our sessions use a hands-on approach that allows you to practice techniques as you learn them.

Our events are held in a comfortable, intimate setting where our members can meet their continuing education requirements and can feel engaged with their colleagues. About a third of all conference participants are industry leaders, making ASDA conferences fantastic opportunities to share and learn with the best minds in the business.
