Recognition for Lifelong Learning

In AGD, continued learning persists even after members have earned Mastership. AGD Masters can continue demonstrating their commitment to lifelong learning and service to the community and/or organized dentistry by earning Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition (LLSR). Here’s how you can apply for LLSR.

LLSR Requirements

To be eligible for LLSR, you must complete the following requirements:

  • Achieve Mastership in the AGD.
  • Maintain current AGD membership for three continuous years by Dec. 31 of the year in which the application is received
  • Earn a minimum of 500 CE hours after receiving the Mastership Award, 150 of which must be participation hours. Hours must be earned in at least eight of the 17 recognized clinical subject areas.
  • Accumulate 100 service points in any combination of dental-related community/volunteer service and/or service to organized dentistry; only those services performed since the date Mastership was received or since a previous LLSR was received are eligible.

All of the CE offered during AGD2024 can be applied towards this professional distinction.

For more information, download the LLSR Guidelines.
