As a member, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:
Convenient CDE Recording–And Transcripts on Demand
The Academy is the general dentist’s primary provider of CDE course credit recording. The Academy not only makes it easy to record your CDE course credit, it makes it easy to access them too. Members can access and print their transcripts at any time at the AGD Web site. This service makes relicensure a snap when you go to renew your license.
Member Web Page Builder
The Academy hosts single web pages where you can remote your dental services, announce your schedule, and most importantly, communicate with your patients. A step-by-step tutorial will make you a Webmaster in minutes.
If you have an e-mail address, you can participate in this program. This system will allow you to use an e-mail address of your choice @agd.org to be forwarded to your e-mail account. (Please note, this is not an e-mail service; rather, an e-mail forwarding service.)
Communicate with your fellow members
AGD FORUMS allows you to network with other members–virtually . The electronic discussions boards offer a convenient way to discuss issues affecting the profession.
Patient Referral Services (1-877-2X-A-YEAR/1-877-292-9327)

Consumers call the toll-free number and an operator provides the names, addresses, and phone numbers of three local Academy member dentists. As of January 2004, the service has fielded more than 11,411 calls from consumers, resulting in more than 21,300 AGD member referrals.
Exclusive, low rates for personal and professional services.
Members can take advantage of numerous, Academy-endorsed programs such as practice financing, a flexible patient-finance program, professional liability, medical, term and life insurance programs, and low-cost credit card processing services.
