Dentists are often the first line of defense against many serious conditions that start in the mouth. And dentists who have earned Fellowship (FAGD) in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) go even further. Becoming an AGD Fellow means a dentist has taken part in some of the most rigorous continuing dental education programs today. These dentists know about the most up-to-date technologies and procedures and care for your whole-body well-being. AGD Fellows make a commitment to care that goes above and beyond—they are pulling for all of your oral health needs. I’m an AGD Fellow.

I’m an FAGD dentist! What does that mean for you and your family?

FAGD stands for Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. Earning Fellowship takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation. Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows. When you see a dentist with FAGD after their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Fellows practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year — not every dentist does this.
