A dentist with more than two decades of experience in the San Francisco Bay area, Cynthia Stephenson, DDS, is the owner of a general and cosmetic dentistry practice in Walnut Creek. Dr. Cynthia Stephenson holds membership with a number of dentistry associations including the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD).
Established in 1984, the AACD is currently host to more than 6,000 industry professionals including dentists, lab technicians, and researchers from around the world. Each year, the academy gathers this global community at their four-day conference held during the spring in a select North American city.
AACD 2016 took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in late April, and provided attendees with a wide range of workshops and lectures, all of which doubled as Approved Continuing Education accreditation courses.
To ensure each participant had the best possible experience at the conference, the sessions were categorized with a number of criteria. Attendees could build their schedule with full knowledge of which sessions would best serve them, based on their skill level (foundational, intermediate, or advanced), their specific profession in the industry, their interest in clinical or non-clinical topics, and the number of credits earned.
In addition to extensive course selection, AACD 2016 offered planned outings to explore the host city, daily receptions, and a fundraising event supporting the Give Back a Smile charity.
