ADA (American Disabilities Act)


AAPD conferences are ADA-compliant. We strive to take the appropriate steps required to ensure that no individual with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated or otherwise treated differently. Individuals requiring special assistance must make the appropriate notation on the registration form and contact the AAPD Meeting Services Department. All requests for special accommodations under ADA must be made allowing enough time for evaluation and appropriate action by AAPD.




The Scientific Program is business casual. We recommend you have a sweater or light jacket available in case you find the meeting rooms too cold. The Welcome Reception is casual; wear your favorite sports team shirt or hat to show your pride! The Presidents' Farewell Dinner is black-tie.


Conference App


Attention all smart phone users and tablet owners! Again this year, the AAPD is providing a conference app for the 2014 Annual Session to keep you engaged before, during and after the meeting. The event app includes a complete list of sessions, speakers, exhibitors, local attractions, facility maps and much more! View the link posted on the AAPD website for the mobile website for Blackberry users or download in the Android Marketplace or the App Store.


Again in 2014, we are providing a dedicated poster app which includes full color posters as well as the abstract allowing you to sort by topic, track, day and presenter. This is brought you by the same provider as the ePoster Gallery, so don't miss this opportunity to see this research! Continuing Education Credit




 The AAPD is an ADA CERP Recognized Provider. Credit is awarded on an hour-for-hour basis. Attendees should claim only those hours of credit that they actually spent in the educational activity.


ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry.


Photography/Video Waiver


AAPD plans to take photographs and/or video at the 2014 AAPD Annual Session and reproduce them in AAPD educational, news or promotional material, whether in print, electronic or other media, including the AAPD website. By participating in the 2014 AAPD Annual Session, you grant AAPD the right to use your name, image and biography for such purposes. All postings become the property of AAPD. Postings may be displayed, distributed or used by AAPD for any purpose.


Scientific Proceedings


The Academy provides the Scientific Proceedings in advance of the Annual Session electronically. Everyone registered by Thursday, May 1, 2014, will receive an e-mail with a link to the handouts in advance allowing you to print the handouts you want to bring with you or to download them to a tablet or computer.


At the meeting, the proceedings are distributed on a CD-ROM during registration which makes it easy to share the scientific proceedings with your colleagues and office staff back at home. Also, you can purchase the synced audio recordings and have access to everything presented at the meeting!




Boston enjoys moderate temperatures in May typically in the 60s-70s, although it can still be cool at night.
