AADGP Philosophy and Objectives

Our Philosophy

The philosophy guiding the American Academy of Dental Group Practice is based on the belief that the individuals who organize and develop group practices are innovators in the world of dentistry; and that they are dedicated to the concept of providing quality dental care, at least equal to the dental care provided through other modes of practices, to all segments of the patient population; and that they seek to deliver that care in ways which are demonstrably more efficient, cost-effective and accessible to the patient, and at the same time more financially and professionally rewarding to the dentist.

Our Objectives

  1. To be a forum for the interchange of knowledge about group practice;
  2. To represent the interests of group practice;
  3. To further the recognition of group practice as a desirable mode of service delivery;
  4. To promote research in the methods of delivery of dental services;
  5. To promote the improvement of quality patient care within group practice;
  6. To coordinate efforts with other organizations in fostering the advancement of the dental profession;
  7. To support the education and training on all aspects of group practice by sponsoring conferences, seminars and publications for dentists, managers and other dental staff.
