NEWS FOR MEMBERS: After ongoing conversations with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) regarding the pros/cons of our organization’s particular non-profit/tax-exempt status it became clear that we need to make changes in our status which will also require us to change our name. These changes were discussed at our Annual Business Meeting in April 2019 and we are currently working with the AAPD and thier legal team on this transition. Our new name will be the Virginia Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (VAPD) and our website will change to www.vapd.org. Our members will not notice any changes other than in name and will be notified when this change is official.
