The Heart of AGD

Established in 1972, the AGD Foundation aims to improve the oral health of the public and support the efforts of the general dentist and AGD. Our primary focus is oral cancer awareness, risk factor prevention and diagnostic training for general dentists.

General dentists are the first line of defense against oral cancer. You can help detect the disease in its early stages during routine dental visits, and by doing so, you increase the oral cancer survival rate. Help us strengthen our profession’s role and AGD’s contribution in the fight against oral cancer. Make an impact by getting involved and donating to the AGD Foundation today.
