The American Association of Disabled Dentists is an organization that seeks to provide support and guidance to dentists suffering from a disability. We understand disability survivorship is anything but linear, it’s a process that involves three steps forward, a flashback or two, and then a leap ahead. Our goal is formation of a national disability support group with regional/state components to assist dentist/surgeons who encounter disabling accidents/illnesses. We have found peer support to be a critical factor in the successful rehabilitation of disabled dentists. This is the strongest support available from a professional standpoint and will team up newly disabled dentists with those who have faced disability in the past.
