Aiding Advancement

In addition to supporting world-class continuing education courses, Heartland Dental is proud to support affiliated dentists in achieving other educational achievements, such as an FAGD or MAGD recognition through the Academy of General Dentistry. AGD fellows are recognized in dentistry as leaders and exemplify to other dentists the importance of quality continuing dental education. Heartland Dental is proud to support many affiliates with FAGD and MAGD certification.When affiliated dentists complete Heartland Dental accredited CE courses, their hours are automatically sent to the AGD.

To complete an AGD fellowship, dentists must complete 500 continuing education hours, take a fellowship exam, be a member of the AGD for at least three years and be present at the fellowship convocation ceremony. To become a master of the AGD, dentists must first complete their FAGD, then earn an additional 600 approved continuing education hours (including 400 hours of hands-on courses), while meeting minimum requirements in certain dental disciplines.
