WHAT’S NEW

AADR Acquires New Web Domain
The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) is excited to announce that we recently acquired the www.aadr.org Web domain. For years this Web domain was owned by another entity and was unavailable to us. We will migrate to the new domain, although the current www.aadronline.org domain will still work. You may visit us online at either URL to access your member benefits, register for meetings, keep current with AADR news and updates, and more.

In addition to the new Web address, we have updated the staff and AADR general email addresses. On the AADR website, you will notice that email addresses now end in @aadr.org. However, the @aadronline.org email addresses will remain active and emails sent to those addresses will be delivered. \

If you have any questions about the new AADR Web domain, please feel free to contact us at research@aadr.org
