SACD was founded in 2002 by a group of Swedish dentists and dental technicians after returning from a week of education at the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) Annual Meeting. SACD’s courses immediately became a success.

There are many competitors on the market today who organize courses and training for profit. SACD’s policy is non-profit. When expenses are paid, any surplus is reinvested back into the organization. That’s how we work within the SACD. And that’s why we’re still around after 15 years and we intend to continue to be around for a while more.

The SACD is an official subsidiary of the AACD – the biggest organization for cosmetically oriented dentists in the world. SACD was the first international partner of AACD. For many years, SACD was also the largest foreign department within the AACD. The partnership with AACD guarantees us and our members a unique gateway into current research. We get to enjoy the benefits of a network of 7000 practitioners, teachers, researchers and laboratory technicians from 70 countries.


Profit is not the driving force for SACD. So, what is the driving force then? Mats Burendal, one of the pioneers of SACD puts it this way:
”The pursuit of excellence and collegial affinity are success factors for the Academy.”

By returning the surplus back to our members, we build a strong and trusting organization. SACD should be a non-profit organization, with no commercial profit. Also in this respect, we follow the example of AACD:

”The AACD is the world’s largest non-profit member organization dedicated to advancing excellence in comprehensive oral care that combines art and science to optimally improve dental health, esthetics, and function.”
