Wellington Dentist Named AGD Fellowship Program Director

Wellington dental practitioner Dr. Laurence Grayhills and University of Florida College of Dentistry faculty member Dr. Stephen Howard have been named directors of the University of Florida College of Dentistry Fellowship Program.

The FellowTrack program is a continuing education series created for dental school students by the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), to provide them with an early start on their progress toward fellowship in the AGD.

“The Academy of General Dentistry is an exemplary organization dedicated to the general public and the dental community, and stands alongside the American Dental Association,” Grayhills said. “The AGD is dedicated to the continuing education of their members following graduation from dental school. With the rapid advancements in technology and our scientific knowledge, the practice of dentistry changes almost daily. The AGD is dedicated to helping their members be the best that they can be.”

Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry requires completion of 500 hours of approved continuing dental education as a prelude to candidacy for mastership, which requires a total of 1100 hours of postgraduate education.

“The goal of the program at the University of Florida College of Dentistry is to foster an ethic of ‘life-long learning’ among our graduates, and in so doing, promote the oral health of the public and the proficiency of general dentists through quality continuing dental education,” Howard said.

The Academy of General Dentistry is a professional association of more than 37,000 general dentists dedicated to providing quality dental care and oral health education to the public.
