Advertising Options to Reach AAP Members

Opportunities for advertising products and services to the 8,000 periodontists in the Academy.

The American Academy of Periodontology comprises more than 8,000 dental professionals in the United States and throughout the world. We offer the following opportunities to reach our members, who represent an excellent target audience for a variety of products and services.

JOP Cover Advertising in the Journal of Periodontology (JOP)

The Academy accepts display advertising in the Journal as a means of keeping our members informed of products and services related to periodontal care. The Journal is received by 7,000 AAP member subscribers and nearly 2,000 other paid subscribers, including general dentists, dental students, dental libraries, and research institutions in over 75 countries worldwide.

CAP Cover Advertising in Clinical Advances in Periodontics (CAP)

The Academy's online-only journal launched in May 2011. Available in a dynamic page-turning digital format, readers can download and print CAP articles; access videos, supplemental images, and abstracts or cited references via links within text; translate material into other languages; bookmark information and make own notations; and forward content to colleagues. Current Journal of Periodontology subscribers get free subscriptions to CAP. 12-time JOP advertisers get free ad pages in CAP, and 6-time JOP advertisers pay a small (10%) premium.

Periospectives Sample Copy Advertising in Periospectives

The Academy’s Periospectives magazine is published four times per year to all Academy members and is hailed as a top member benefit. Winner of 6 publishing awards since its debut in 2010, Periospectives is the Academy's main vehicle for communicating information about the association, the specialty, and its members.


The AAP is now inviting companies to include their marketing message with important emails that are sent to ALL members of the AAP. Each of these opportunities offers the dental marketer the exclusive ability to reach approximately 9,000 members and subscribers 28 times a year with these ongoing email communications:

  • Periospectives — 4 per year (quarterly)
  • Journal of Periodontology/Clinical Advances in Periodontics — 12 per year (monthly)
  • All-member e-newsletter ( news) – 12 per year (monthly)

Exhibiting at Meetings

Each year the Academy’s Annual Meeting brings thousands of prospective customers in direct contact with exhibitors and event sponsors.

Mailing List Rental

The Academy rents its membership list for one-time use only to commercial and not-for-profit organizations. Updated daily, this list is a highly effective way to reach periodontists. The Academy does not release email addresses, telephone numbers, or fax numbers for any purposes.

Corporate Partners

The AAP Foundation receives charitable donations from Corporate Partners in the form of pledges to the Foundation’s Endowment Fund and sponsorships of Foundation events, educational programs, silent auctions, and raffles.
