The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) is accredited as a provider of continuing medical education by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and is recognized as a provider of continuing dental education by the American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP). The AAOMS adheres to the ACCME Essentials and Guidelines, including the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support, and the AAOMS adheres to the ADA CERP Standards and Procedures in its development and delivery of continuing medical and continuing dental education activities.

 It is the policy of the AAOMS to ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor in scientific/educational activities. All faculty and others who participate in the planning and execution of an AAOMS activity are required to disclose relevant financial relationships with commercial interests. A commercial interest refers to any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The principal intent of requiring disclosure information is not to prevent faculty with relevant financial relationships from the planning or delivery of content, but rather to ensure that AAOMS CDE/CME activities promote quality and safety, are effective in improving practice, are based on valid content, and are independent of control from commercial interests and free of commercial bias. Disclosure is required so that course directors may reasonably decide whether to make adjustments in the activity and its faculty, and so that participants in the activity may formulate their own judgments regarding commercial bias in the presentation in light of full disclosure of related information.

All faculty and others who participate in the planning and execution of an AAOMS educational activity have been informed of the AAOMS Policy on Disclosure of Relevant Conflicts of Interest. Faculty who have disclosed industry relationships have been counseled, in writing, of the necessity to deliver their presentations in a manner free of commercial bias. Written notification is made, in accordance with AAOMS Policy, to resolve and relevant conflicts of interest.
