The American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (AACP) is pleased to announce the creation of the Canadian Chapter of the AACP. In July of 2006 at the annual meeting of the AACP, the first executive was formed. Dr. Dennis Marangos (Toronto, ON) DDS, BSc, DABCP was elected as the first president.
The AACP vision is to be the premier TMD / Craniofacial Pain organization representing all practitioners in this discipline by providing a common ground for advancement of knowledge, clinical practice and research.
During this conference a number of Canadian dentists were awarded with Fellowship and / or Diplomate status:
-Dr. Dennis Marangos, Toronto, ON (Fellow & Diplomate)
-Dr. Dave Rawson, London, ON (Fellow & Diplomate)
-Dr. Lawrence Freedman, Toronto, ON (Fellow & Diplomate)

-Dr. Brock Rondeau, London, ON (Fellow & Diplomate)
-Dr. Edmund Liem, Chilliwack, BC (Fellow & Diplomate)

This illustrates the growing number of Canadian dentists who are devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of craniofacial pain; thus the need for the establishment of a Canadian Chapter.
2007 marks the first full year of operation for the Canadian Chapter of the AACP and to continue the tradition of education and exchange of ideas, the Canadian Chapter of the AACP will be hosting the first Annual Scientific session in Toronto, Ontario on October 12-13, 2007 (visit the AACP website www.aacfp.org for information about the meeting).
This newly created Canadian Chapter of the AACP will benefit TMD / Craniofacial Pain health practitioners as well patients.
Since 1985, the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (AACP) has been meeting the need for widespread knowledge about the diagnosis and treatment of craniofacial pain and Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD). Today the AACP has more than 900 members worldwide; most members are from the USA (770), followed by Canada (70), Australia (60) and 13 other countries.
