Attention 2020 Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition Applicants:

Due to safety concerns associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the AGD has made the difficult decision to replace AGD2020 with a virtual online meeting. The AGD also determined that a virtual Convocation Ceremony would not be a fitting way to honor our members’ achievements.  As a result the 2020 Convocation Ceremony has been cancelled.

All 2020 Lifelong Learning and Service Recipients should have received an email from the AGD giving them the option of receiving complimentary registration to AGD2020 Virtual or deferring complimentary registration to a future meeting.  2020 Lifelong Learning and Service Recipients can participate in a future Convocation Ceremony if they choose.

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:

  • Maintain current AGD membership for three continuous year by Dec. 31 of the year in which the application is received
  • Be an AGD Master
  • 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
