Educational Accolades through the AGD
Dentists who are members of the AGD can set themselves apart professionally by engaging in high-quality, multidisciplinary continuing education courses leading to various levels of recognition status such as Fellowship Award (FAGD), Mastership Award (MAGD), Lifelong Learning and Service Award (LLSR), etc. CE presentations that “count” towards these awards must be sponsored by the AGD PACE (Program Approval for Continuing Education) program or the ADA CERP (Continuing Education Recognition Program). The Fellowship Award is one of the most common within the AGD. The basic requirements for this status are:
Currently, the South Carolina AGD constituent does not host it’s own FellowTrack or MasterTrack CE programs. States with FellowTrack programs help you satisfy the requirements for obtaining the Fellowship Award by offering AGD PACE-approved continuing education courses on a regular basis. As a member of SC AGD, you can participate in eligible CE programs in other states and credit will apply towards a Fellowship Award.
The following states offer a FellowTrack program: Alabama, California, District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia. If interested in pursuing an FAGD, please visit the constituent state’s website and contact their Continuing Education board member.
