The AAMP is an association of prosthodontists engaged in the art and science of maxillofacial prosthetics. Their mission is accumulating and disseminating knowledge and experience; and promoting and maintaining research programs involving methods, techniques and devices used in maxillofacial prosthetics. The academy is devoted to the study and practice of methods used to habilitate esthetics and function of patients with acquired, congenital and developmental defects of the head and neck; and of methods used to maintain the oral health of patients exposed to cancer-cidal doses of radiation or cytotoxic drugs.
