This patients upper teeth were badly decayed and could not be saved. I extracted all her upper teeth and made an immediate denture. Next I will work on her lower teeth.
This nice lady had worn her teeth down from clenching and grinding. I took a 3D digital impression of her teeth, computer designed, printed and placed 4 upper anterior crowns.
computer design and 3D printing/milling out the crown-I filmed these videos with my phone to demonstrate how we do it
In Virginia we have 6,500 dentist, of which 200 of us are Fellows of The Academy of General Dentistry.
What does that mean for you and your family?
Earning Fellowship takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation. Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows. When you see a dentist with FAGD after their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Fellows practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year — not every dentist does this.
To become an AGD Fellow, a dentist must:
- Complete over 500 credit hours of CE.
- Earn 350 of those 500 credits in live courses.
- Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.
