Fourteen volunteer dentists from Salt Lake City are ready to pitch in at the Games.

In the past 50 years, the Academy has risen to the forefront of the profession and built a solid reputation as the premier dental organization committed to helping dentists stay up-to-date with new research, new technologies and new products through lifelong learning.
