ADI's Future ~ Fellows
Share |


The future of the Academy is membership!!  Membership is by invitation to those dentists who have distinguished themselves in our profession. ADI includes in its membership many outstanding individuals in the dental profession who have a desire to give back a portion of what they have reaped. ADI membership is altruism at its highest level and all members, officers and regents pay all their own travel expenses. All Academy dues go to support the Academy's international programs.

Criteria for Fellowship

  1. Have been active at least (5) five years in the practice of dentistry or in any related area of dentistry, such as teaching, administration, research or government services wherein remuneration is gained from such service. This restriction may be modified for exceptionally qualified candidates by approval of the Board of Regents.

  2. Be a graduate of a dental school recognized by the appropriate professional accrediting body if such exists in the   candidate's nation.

  3. Be active in the dental profession and highly esteemed for integrity and character.

  4. Be approved by regent in which the nominee resides and be approved by the appropriate membership committee.

Fellowship is a Distinct Honor

A Fellowship in the Academy of Dentistry International is a distinctive honor that is bestowed only if the accomplishments of the nominee are truly outstanding. In order to maintain the stature of the Fellowship, the Academy's Committee on Credentials and Fellowship studies and evaluates each nominee.

The Academy may bestow Fellowship on a person who has notably contributed to the advancement of the dental profession in one or more ways, such as: Clinical Practice; Research; Education; Public Service; Literature of Journalism; and Service to the Profession.

Upon approval, the Board of Regents awards the honor at a formal convocation ceremony usually in conjunction with a major dental meeting.
