EndorsementAny opinion expressed or communicated regarding any product, device or appliance during an AADSM educational program is solely the opinion of the individual(s) expressing or communicating that opinion, and not that of the AADSM.
The AADSM does not endorse or recommend any products or services. The AADSM does not review, investigate, or otherwise approve the quality, type, message, nature, or value of any product or service discussed in the course and assumes no liability of any kind for any verbal or written information provided by speakers or attendees. We encourage you to conduct your own independent research to verify and investigate any company prior to purchasing its products or services. Please consult your own professional legal, financial and medical advisors for advice concerning any products or services discussed.

The AADSM cautions participants about the potential risks of using limited knowledge when incorporating techniques and procedures into practice when they have not had supervised clinical experience or demonstrated competency.
Industry SupportWhile the AADSM appreciates the support of the exhibiting companies, it does not endorse or recommend any products, services, or educational offerings provided by exhibitors or through industry supported events held at the AADSM Annual Meeting.
The exhibit hall is simply available as a convenience for attendees who may want to learn more or compare various products, services or educational offerings. The AADSM does not review, investigate, or otherwise approve, the quality, type, message, nature, or value of any product or service marketed by exhibitors.
