About ASDA

The American Society for Dental Aesthetics (ASDA) is made up of members who share a lifelong commitment to learning and providing exceptional care. Founded in 1976 by the "Father of Aesthetic Dentistry" and current president, Dr. Irwin Smigel, we are proud to be the first national society for cosmetic dentists that was established in the U.S. Since that time, we have sought to constantly improve the industry through the exchange of information on best practices, including innovative techniques and technologies, and other topics that are crucial to providing outstanding patient care. Contact us today to learn more.

Strengthening the Cosmetic Dentistry Community

Since its inception, ASDA has been a catalyst for increasing national awareness of dental aesthetics and advancements in the field. ASDA provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive teaching programs on the art and science of cosmetic dentistry. We also educate members on ways cosmetic advancements can be integrated into the traditional aspects of dental care.

With the richness of the cosmetic dentistry profession continuing to grow, new innovations are always in development. For this reason, it is important to have a national assemblage of individuals who are dedicated to sharing this knowledge. At ASDA, we have built a strong network of cosmetic dentists who value education as the path towards enhancing their skills and improving patient experiences and outcomes. 

Our Unique Learning Opportunities

To meet these goals, ASDA holds a multi-day conference each year, which features lectures and participation workshops taught by leading cosmetic dentists and educators. Our conferences meet continuing education requirements and are held in dynamic, relaxed settings. These events provide an excellent opportunity for members to develop contacts or catch up with old colleagues. Since roughly a third of our members are industry leaders, ASDA conferences allow our members to directly interact with podium speakers.

We are proud to have young and established members alike learning alongside one another, and we strive to foster an environment that is creative and a team that is close-knit. Our conference hotels are carefully selected, so you can take advantage of on-site amenities between your sessions.  We even have our own ASDA rock band that performs in the evenings!
