Welcome to the website of the American Academy of Gold Foil Operators. Here you will find information about our membership, meetings, and mission. This site is intended to be a resource for our membership and anyone interested in the use of direct gold in dentistry. We meet yearly at dental schools across the country. Our meetings include both scientific lectures and clinical demonstrations. Meetings are open to all interested professionals and dental students. In addition to these activities we publish a newsletter which is available on this site and distributed to our membership. The newsletter is a window into our activities. You will also find clinical photographs from numerous meetings chronicling the work of our members.
Direct gold is still in use today and many still consider it to be the finest restorative for use in specific applications.
