The American Academy of Cariology (AAC) is hosting its second annual conference on August 16 at the Westin Denver International Airport and Conference Center in Denver.
The American Academy of Cariology (AAC) is hosting its second annual conference on August 16 at the Westin Denver International Airport and Conference Center in Denver from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. The theme of this year’s meeting is “Dental Caries Progress: Sugar or Bacterial Dysbiosis.” The AAC conference precedes the National Caries Management by Risk Assessment (CAMBRA) Coalition meeting on August 17 at the same venue. A reception co-hosted by both organizations is planned for the evening of August 16.
The AAC is dedicated to eradicating dental caries in the United States through the promotion of science-based disease management. It encompasses five pillars— interprofessional, advocacy and support, caries-related research, caries-related professional and community education, and science-based caries management for individuals and communities—each of which is represented by a committee.
Many of Dimensions of Dental Hygiene’s contributors comprise the AAC Board, including President Margherita Fontana, DDS, PhD; Chair of the Caries-Related Research Pillar John D.B. Featherstone, MSc, PhD; Chair of Caries-Related Professional and Community Education Mark S. Wolff, DDS, PhD; and Chair of the Science-Based Caries Management for Individuals and Communities Douglas A. Young, DDS, MS, MBA.
