Why Choose an FAGD or MAGD Dentist?

If your dentist is a Fellow or Master of the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD or MAGD), they are the best of the best in the field. Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows, and less than 2 percent are AGD Masters. You can rest assured that your dentist cares about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. Your dentist practices these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year — not every dentist does this.

To become an AGD Fellow, a dentist must:

  • Complete over 500 credit hours of continuing education.
  • Earn 350 of those 500 credits in live courses.
  • Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.

To become an AGD Master, a dentist must:

  • Complete over 1,100 credit hours of continuing education.
  • Earn 400 of those 1,100 credits in hands-on courses.
  • Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.

Has Your Dentist Earned Their Fellowship or Mastership?

To determine which dentists have achieved their fellowship or mastership, check for “FAGD” or “MAGD” in their title. You can also use our Find a Dentist tool to see if your dentist is a member. Check the box within the search tool to search exclusively for Fellows and Masters.
