Founded in 1951, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) is the first professional organization in the world dedicated to implant dentistry. Its membership includes general dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists, prosthodontists, and others interested in the field of implant dentistry. As a membership organization, we currently represent almost 4,000 dentists worldwide.
The AAID mission is simple:
To advance the science and practice of implant dentistry through education, research support and to serve as the credentialing standard for implant dentistry for the benefit of mankind.
Through our educational offerings and credentialing program, we provide valuable expertise in the field of oral implantology—expertise that ultimately benefits the patients that dentists serve.
If you are a patient interested in dental implants, I encourage you to visit our Find a Dentist section to contact an AAID-credentialed implant dentist in your area or learn more about dental implants.
The AAID Board of Trustees believes in the importance of creating a welcoming environment for all, therefore in 2021 the first Diveristiy, Equity & Inclusion policy was enacted:
The American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) works together in order to develop a collaborative and inclusive environment. We are focused on developing a patient-centered philosophy around excellence and compassion. Our sole intention is to uplift the profession of implant dentistry and to make it welcoming and accessible to all communities.
