Only 3% of dentists have achieved fellowship status. A council of the Academy of General Dentistry reviews each individual application for the Fellowship Award as standards of the Academy of General Dentistry must be met on dental education before continuing the award process.

FAGD dentists provide top quality dental care for patients through their continuation of education, learning new techniques and latest developments in dentistry.
