Why do we have “FAGD” behind our names?
The Fellowship (FAGD) Award from the Academy of General Dentistry is one of the most rigorous continuing dental education programs today. It helps us, as your dental providers, stay up to date on the most current dental procedures in order to offer you the highest quality of care.
Dr. Jill Colson received her fellowship award in 2006 and Dr. Chad Colson received his in 2008.
The Academy of General Dentistry describes the award as such: A general dentist who is a “Fellow” in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) has been recognized by other general dentists as a leader and exemplifies to other dentists the importance of quality continuing dental education. To earn the FAGD, a dentist must complete a minimum of 500 continuing dental education credit hours, pass a comprehensive exam and have been an AGD member for three continuous years.
