This award means that Dr. Korman cares about long-term dental health for you and your family and demonstrates that concern by pursuing additional designations. The Fellowship (FAGD) and Mastership (MAGD) Awards are two of the most rigorous continuing dental education programs today. These awards signify that Dr. Korman is committed to staying up-to-date on the most current dental procedures in order to offer you the highest quality of care.
FAGD: A "Fellow" in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) has been recognized by other 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.
MAGD: A "Master" in the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD) has completed a structured and demanding set of requirements. To attain the MAGD, your dentist must first become a Fellow in the AGD. Your dentist must then earn an additional 600 approved continuing education hours (including 400 hours of hands-on courses), while meeting minimum requirements in certain dental disciplines. Only 1% of dentists have achieved this designation.
