What Is An FAGD Dentist?

FAGD stands for “Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry.” It is one of the most prestigious awards in dentistry and it designates that a dentist has achieved true excellence in their profession. In order to obtain this level of honor within this highly respected professional institution, a dentist needs to complete numerous hours of advanced training and education as well as a variety of other parameters in order to be considered for fellowship.

To be a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry is quite different from being a member of the AGD. Virtually any general dentist can join the AGD, but a Fellow has met rigorous requirements. They must:

  • Earn a minimum of 500 approved continuing education credits
  • Pass a comprehensive 400-question examination
  • Maintain membership in the AGD for at least 3 consecutive years

To maintain Dr. Shtarkman's membership, he must participate in at least 75 hours of continuing education every 3 years.
