National Prosthodontics Awareness Week


Save the Date!

NPAW 2014 — April 6-12


The American College of Prosthodontists advocatNPAW_LogoGenericSmalles for the valuable role that prosthodontists play on the dental team. National Prosthodontics Awareness Week focuses on raising public awareness about the critical importance of a healthy mouth. 

A memorable and effective National Prosthodontics Awareness Week begins with a solid plan to inform the public that a healthy mouth and replacing missing teeth are necessary for overall health. Additionally, prosthodontists can provide expert care and are well prepared to work with assisting patients in considering the most appropriate options for replacing any number of missing teeth.

The ACP invites you to join colleagues across the country in celebrating NPAW in your local community. Your activities will enhance visibility of the specialty and the more than 3,400 ACP members!
