What It Means to Be an AGD Dentist

Academy of General Dentistry Fellowship

An AGD dentist is a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD). Dentists who are awarded the AGD Fellowship have spent years dedicating themselves to continuing education, constantly expanding their knowledge of the dental field. 

As an AGD dentist, Dr. Scott Mahlin brings years of experience and hard-earned knowledge into every dental appointment, which means you receive top-notch dental care from a dentist trained in the newest dental trends and techniques.

It is truly a great honor to be chosen as an AGD Fellow, and Dr. Mahlin is thrilled to be able to use all the knowledge he has learned to make your teeth healthier and your smile brighter!

How Do Dentists Earn the AGD Fellowship?

The Academy of General Dentistry is a non-profit organization of leaders in the field of dentistry. 

In addition to other requirements, AGD Fellows must:

  • Earn over 500 credit hours of continuing education
  • Have a dental license (must not be suspended or revoked within the last five years and can’t be on suspension, revocation, or probation)
  • Pass the AGD  Fellowship Exam, which is equivalent in its difficulty level to board certification exams

Once all the necessary requirements have been met, the dentist receives his or her award at the AGD Convocation Ceremony.
