General dentists attend CE courses that address a wide variety of topics in all specialty areas. AGD subject codes help to clearly identify the general topic/specialty addressed in the course content.

AGD subject codes are:

  • Assigned by the organization who presented the course.
  • Included on the both the AGD Award and Licensing Transcript to quickly identify the main area of study for each course.
  • Used to help confirm members have met specific local licensing board CE requirements.
  • Used to track members’ progress in meeting the AGD Fellowship and Mastership Award CE requirements.
