AES FELLOWSHIP AND MASTERSHIP RECOGNITION PROGRAM
Fellowship and Mastership status in AES recognizes and awards members of the AES who have made the appropriate commitment to the field of dentistry through continuing education, particularly in the area of occlusion, TMD, and comprehensive care. These two levels of recognition status, will be determined by the level of accomplishment of the member at the time of application for recognition and result in an elevation in membership category to either Active Member - Fellow AES or Active Member - Master AES as applicable which will be publicly acknowledged at the AES annual Scientific Meeting, on the AES website in your AES searchable membership directory listing and with a certificate of recognition issued by the AES.
