Our amazing organization is unwavering in its commitment to children’s oral health, advocacy for children’s rights, and leadership in research and education. Your continued support and participation are vital to our shared vision of promoting optimal oral health for all children. Please renew now at the top of the page for your  2024 -25 membership year. Together we can accomplish great things.

Since the beginning, over 77 years ago, the AAPD has been committed to our members and the children we serve. We all share this common goal and it is entwined in our DNA. This year we will work together to cultivate and mentor our young members, advance Medicaid reform, continue our advocacy efforts, increase our efforts to strengthen our relationships with both our internal and external stakeholders, and provide the very best science to support the great work we do each day.

Please read 2024 CEO Report to learn about all the great accomplishments in the past year.

We as pediatric dentists thrive on being together! This was clearly evident this year with the huge success and fun we all had at the Annual Session in Toronto. I’m so excited next year will be in my hometown of Denver, Colorado May 22 – 25, 2025. It will be my privilege to showcase the Mile High City  to all of you. Make plans to be there and reconnect with friends and colleagues and be with your AAPD Family. A good time will be had by all!

I am very proud of the AAPD and all it does for the pediatric dental profession, as well as the children we serve. It is the support of you, our members, that makes it all possible. We are stronger together! Thank you for what you do each and every day. It is going to be a great year!

Sincerely yours,

Scott Smith, DDS, MS
