Jameson, D.D.S., M.S., F.A.C.P., was confirmed as Immediate Past President of the American College of Prosthodontists on Friday, Oct. 11, at the ACP Annual Awards & President's Dinner. The College's 43rd Annual Session in Las Vegas had record-breaking attendance levels of more than 1,200 dental professionals who celebrated Dr. Jameson's leadership as the ACP's 2012-13 President and concluded his one-year term with great fanfare.

Like medicine, dentistry has taken incredible leaps forward in the past decade. Prosthodontists are at the forefront of this innovation by applying their advanced training, education and commitment to life-long learning of new materials, using state of the art digital dentistry tools to help improve patient outcomes and promote optimal oral health care.

From dental implants, crowns, veneers and tooth whitening, to full-mouth reconstruction, prosthodontists use leading edge digital dentistry and CAD/CAM systems to accurately design prosthodontic solutions for patients with complex and comprehensive oral health needs.
The ACP is the only prosthodontic specialty organization whose membership is based solely on education credentials. ACP members must be in or have completed an ADA-accredited advanced education program in prosthodontics.
