AACD Smile Gallery
The AACD Smile Gallery Competition took place at the Annual AACD Scientific Conference. The cosmetic dentists submitted before and after photographs of cosmetic cases they have done that year. There are typically 300+ entries every year. All entries were judged by an anonymous panel of Accredited AACD members. To maintain anonymity the entries were coded so the judges do not know who the contestants are. Gold, Silver and Bronze awards were given to the top entries.
This prestigious competition was the only one in the world and it showcased AACD members’ clinical skills in cosmetic dentistry. It was open to all AACD members and determined the best of the best in clinical cosmetic dentistry.
2007 was the final year the AACD did the Smile Gallery Competition. To see our most recent results, please view the results page.
