The ADA is committed to its members and to the improvement of oral health for the public. The ADA’s vision is to be the recognized leader on oral health with its mission to help all members succeed.

Kois Center Dentistry

Kois Center offers a comprehensive nine-course curriculum involving aesthetic, occlusion, and restorative dentistry. This curriculum is built upon Dr. John C. Kois´ mission statement: “Enabling motivated dentists to achieve extraordinary levels, expanding both knowledge and application skills in restorative dentistry.”


American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM)

Did you know there are thousands of dentists trained to help treat and manage your snoring and sleep apnea? The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) is an association of dentists who help patients control obstructive sleep apnea and snoring through the use of oral appliance therapy (OAT). If you have trouble tolerating Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and need an effective alternative for living with sleep apnea, talk to an AADSM dentist today about how OAT can help you get a good night’s rest.

American Dental Society of Anesthesiology (ADSA)

The ADSA was founded in 1953, and is a 5,000 member not-for-profit society dedicated to continuing education and the advancement of anesthesia and sedation science. It is therefore the only place in dentistry where all who are interested can gather together on common ground. ADSA is well-known for providing education and fellowship status in deep sedation & general anesthesia for dentist anesthesiologists and oral/maxillofacial surgeons. Its courses are taught by the leading experts in the field, and its reputation is without parallel. If you seek a higher level of knowledge and skill, there is simply no place else that can match what you’ll find here.


American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD)

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry® (AACD) is dedicated to advancing excellence in the art and science of comprehensive cosmetic dentistry and encouraging the highest standards of ethical conduct and responsible patient care. The AACD fulfills its mission by: offering superior educational opportunities; promoting and supporting a respected Accreditation credential; serving as a user-friendly and inviting forum for the creative exchange of knowledge and ideas; and providing accurate and useful information to the public and the profession.


Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS)

After seeing the number of patients exhibiting dental anxiety—and the benefits of sedation dentistry in treating these patients—Drs. Anthony Feck and Michael Silverman partnered to establish DOCS Education in 1999.
From humble beginnings, DOCS Education has grown from a single course offering to a seminar series occurring several times a year in locations across the country. We measure our growth, however, by more than just the number and size of venues. DOCS Education has also expanded our curriculum.

DOCS Education now offers a variety of training options, from IV sedation and pediatrics to advanced life support and emergency airway management, to enable dentists to offer a higher standard of care to their patients.

With more than a decade of experience, DOCS Education has become a trusted source of continuing education for dentists. In fact, we estimate that about two million patients have benefited from the training we’ve provided to dentists across North America.


The Misch International Implant Institute (MISCH)

The Misch International Implant Institute™ was developed in 1984 to help set and elevate the standard of care in implant dentistry using a hands-on approach. Now world renown, the Institute’s goal is to remain at the forefront of implant dentistry through research, education and its unique clinical applications. Using these tools and a well-trained faculty, the Institute is able to provide its students with the most progressive and documented information.

Dr. Misch is the primary speaker at the surgical an prosthetic sessions.


International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI)

The International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) was founded in 1972. Devoted to providing implant education to the entire dental team to better serve its patients, the ICOI is not only the world’s largest dental implant organization, but it is also the world’s largest provider of continuing dental implant education.

The ICOI is an association of general dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists, prosthodontists, endodontists, orthodontists, laboratory technicians, auxiliaries, industry representatives, researchers, faculty members, pre and post doctoral graduate dental students as well as the general public.


New Jersey Dental Association (NJDA)
