  • To advance multidisciplinary collaboration and discovery among industrial and institutional researchers, clinicians, laboratory technicians and others with an interest in color and appearance in dentistry;
  • To create and implement educational and training programs on color and appearance for dental professionals and students;
  • To promote dental health for the general public through the advanced art and science of color and appearance in dentistry.
