We’re Rooting for You
Wherever you are in your career — dental student, new dentist, mid-career or experienced dentists — AGD provides educational programming, opportunities for you to advocate for our profession, and a link for general dentists who want to connect with a strong and dedicated network of industry leaders.
AGD was established to fill a void for continuing dental education by a general dentist with a passion for constant improvement. Sixty-eight years later, 40,000 members share the same passion. Beyond advancing their skills through exceptional continuing education, they rely on AGD to stay abreast of practice management best practices, to provide valuable advocacy resources and to engage in peer-to-peer networking.
Our on-demand and in-person educational programs, special member savings, practice management tools, advocacy support resources, award-winning publications and the industry's only achievement-based awards for general dentists will help you distinguish yourself as the educated voice in oral health and dentistry.
AGD offers members the opportunity to select their membership level based on what they value most by offering a Premium Plus or Premium membership level. Details about what is offered at each level can be found at AGD.org/membership.
