The Academy was founded in 1954 by a small group of visionary practitioners determined to foster these goals. Their objective was to promote the art, science and practice of prosthodontics through a committed membership of clinicians, educators and researchers.
Today’s Academy membership advances the goals of its founders by:
- Monitoring new developments that may support improved health care.
- Promoting the highest standards of ethics and professional fellowship.
- Fostering a better understanding among the various disciplines of dentistry and all related professions.
- Recognizing, encouraging and stimulating research and education.
