The Oregon Academy of General Dentistry (Oregon AGD) is a rich resource for dental professionals in our state. With the mission, “To serve as the premier provider of professional development for Oregon dentists”, our goal is to bring the best and brightest mentors and opportunities in continuing dental education to our members.
We are a community of dentists seeking excellence and we specialize in providing peer-to-peer learning and hands-on training through study clubs, lectures and conferences. We offer Oregon AGD members the tools to expand and enrich their knowledge of oral health to better serve their patients.
Thanks to our quality educational programs, members have the opportunity to meet national accreditation requirements, and to pursue the prestigious AGD Fellowship (FAGD), Mastership (MAGD) and Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition (LLSR) awards.
Professional development is the key to a satisfying, successful dental practice. Whether you’re new to our community or a long-time member, you’ll find Oregon AGD a vital link to the field of dental health, enabling you to achieve excellence through lifelong learning opportunities.
Oregon AGD was established over 40 years ago as a constituent of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) by a group of dentists seeking opportunities for continuing education.
Early members recognized the need for and value of providing dentists the means to expand their knowledge of oral health to better serve patients, and Oregon AGD claims a rich history of educational leadership in the state.
Over the years, we have grown in membership and been nationally recognized for our outstanding services to the dental health community. Among awards received, Oregon AGD is pleased to note:
- AGD 2000 Membership Award
- AGD 2000 Market Share Award
- AGD 2002 Honorable Mention: 2002 Constituent of the Year Competition
Oregon AGD is made up of over 900 members from throughout Oregon who pursue ongoing education through a variety of quality forums with many working towards the achievement of AGD’s distinguished Fellowship (FAGD), Mastership (MAGD) and Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition (LLSR) Awards.
