Welcome To Our Website
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 almost fifty 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 and restorative dentists who are committed to excellence in our field through continuing education. For decades, we have facilitated the exchange of the best techniques and innovations in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Through our engaging conferences and ongoing dialogue among our members, the ASDA continues to advance the art and science of aesthetics in dentistry for patients worldwide. We are always interested in welcoming exceptional professionals who share our passion for expert care and education.
OUR UPCOMING CONFERENCE November 1-4, 2023
SARASOTA: CITY BY THE SEA
Between its colorful history and enticing natural landscape, Sarasota attracts visitors from around the world. Here, white-sand beaches give way to emerald fairways and Spanish architecture. Museums and art galleries are as alluring as the turquoise waves on the horizon. And at the center of it all stands the Ritz Carlton resort, where Gulf Coast landmarks, cultural performances, championship golf and pristine beaches are all just moments away.
From languid days on the beach, to cultural expeditions in the city, the ASDA and Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota welcomes you with experiences that are as diverse as the city itself. Here, you may unwind with spa treatments or a round of golf. You can experience the luxury of resort living in the heart of an urban downtown.
SHARING KNOWLEDGE WITH LEADERS OF DENTISTRY
ASDA's goal is to promote continuous learning among our international network of cosmetic and restorative dentists. By enriching the skills of our members and the profession at large, they can better serve their patients. We strive to reach these goals through our unique conferences.
At each annual ASDA conference, you can expect to learn the latest developments in techniques, technology and business during engaging sessions led by internationally recognized experts. Our learning environments are dynamic. They are designed to feature interactive teaching styles. Unlike events where you can only expect to sit passively in a lecture hall, our sessions include podium speakers and a hands-on approach that allow 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 recognized thought leaders in Dentistry, making ASDA conferences fantastic opportunities to share and learn with the best minds in the profession.
The American Board of Aesthetic Dentistry was established by members and leaders of the ASDA in 1993. The Board’s mission is to establish and promote standards of care and to recognize individuals who have demonstrated their technical expertise in Aesthetic Dentistry.
