The International Academy for Dental and Facial Esthetics (IADFE) is an honorary service organization, based in New York, whose mission is to foster interdisciplinary cooperation and education in the area of dental and facial aesthetics. The IADFE includes among its Fellowship many prominent and well respected professionals, from various associated professions (dentistry, plastic surgery, dermatology etc), who have a desire to foster new professional opportunities so that, ultimately, patients can be better and more knowledgeably served.
AADFA’s Director and Head Trainer is an active Regent of this illustrious institution and all AADFA Trainers are current Fellows of the IADFE. Each year AADFA is asked to nominate those active Members who have displayed exemplary levels of achievement, skill, passion and commitment to their education and the profession, by completing the AADFA Training Pathway.
IADFE Fellowship status brings many personal and professional benefits, starting with successful nominees being inducted at the annual meeting of the IADFE in New York each December, timed to coincide with the Greater New York Dental Meeting. AADFA hosts a pre-ceremony social “tea” gathering each year for our nominees, with the Fellowship then being conferred during a cap and gown ceremony at which time new Fellows are presented with the Certificate of Fellowship and the designated membership pin. This is a great chance to meet and connect with the Regents and other Fellows from all over the world.
CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR FELLOWSHIP IS JUST A FEW SHORT COURSES AWAY!
