American Academy of Cariology Holds Inaugural Meeting

The American Academy of Cariology held its inaugural meeting in Atlanta in conjunction with the American
Dental Association Annual Meeting.

The American Academy of Cariology (AAC), a nonprofit that seeks to eradicate dental caries in the United States through the promotion of evidence-based disease management, held its inaugural meeting last October in conjunction with the American Dental Association Annual Meeting in Atlanta. The AAC’s mission is to be the leading interprofessional organization that advocates, communicates and supports development and integration of cariology to promote oral health. Its main focus is on research, professional and community education, and science-based caries management for individuals and communities.

More than 200 supporters attended the AAC meeting that sought to reach a broad audience interested in furthering the mission. Chief goals included creating collaborations with key counterpart professional organization and government agencies, and providing content of interest to the target audience.

Membership is open to all, including, but not limited to, researchers, academics, practicing dentists, dental hygienists, physicians, nurses, social workers, government officials and dental industry members. More information is available at aacariology.org.
