  • Beginning in October, general dentists will be able to enroll in Premium or Premium Plus AGD membership. While the Premium option is similar to existing AGD membership, Premium Plus includes a host of options for the general dentist who wants more value when it comes to quality continuing education (CE).

    One of the most valuable inclusions in Premium Plus membership is free registration for the AGD scientific session before the early bird deadline. The premier meeting for general dentistry, AGD's scientific session has earned a reputation for having some of the finest dental CE in the world. AGD2022 will be held July 27-30 at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida.

    Premium Plus membership is also appealing to general dentists seeking AGD Fellowship and Mastership. Only 6% and 2% of general dentists have earned these distinctions, respectively. In addition to four additional free on-demand webinars that can be applied toward Fellowship or Mastership, Premium Plus also includes 20% discounts on both the Fellowship Review Course and Fellowship Study Guide.

    A practice management perk included in Premium Plus is free virtual setup for dental card services if a member chooses to utilize Dental Card Services Alliance. This is a virtual terminal that facilitates online payments, automated recurring payments, text-to-pay and other value-added benefits.

    If you choose not to enroll in Premium Plus membership, Premium membership contains all the benefits that AGD is known for, including: CE tracking, practice management resources, insurance and coding resources, discounts on dental products through AGDVANTAGE and access to AGD publications, including AGD Impact and General Dentistry as well as e-publications "AGD Today", "This Week at AGD" and "The Daily Grind" blog.

    Whatever your needs are and whatever your budget is, AGD has general dentists covered throughout every stage of their careers. For more information, visit
