CAPD/ACDP Committees and Association Liaisons
Working to Enhance Membership Value
CAPD/ACPD has a number of standing Committees as well as appointed liaisons with other dental and industry associations,
each with specific responsibilities in the service of CAPD/ACDP members. We feel that it is important for you to know that
your Executive and Volunteers are actively engaged in the industry and looking out for your interests on both the domestic
and international scene. Membership involvement is the hallmark of our Academy. If you are interested in serving on one
of the committees, please contact the respective Chair or send an email to [email protected]
