The Fellowship Award symbolizes excellence in the dental profession and a commitment to providing exceptional patient care.
“The AGD is proud to honor Dr. Weber for his commitment to continuing education and dedication to providing his patients with advanced and exceptional oral health care,” said AGD President Manuel A. Cordero, DDS, CPH, MAGD. “Dr. Weber has gone above and beyond his duties, distinguishing himself professionally amongst his peers and exemplifying his allegiance to the dental community.”

The fellowship designation is one of the most rigorous dental continuing education programs today. A general dentist who is a “fellow” in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) is recognized by other general dentists as a leader and example to other dentists in the importance of continuing quality education to patient care.
The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) is a professional association of more than 40,000 general dentists dedicated to providing quality dental care and oral health education to the public. Founded in 1952, AGD is the largest association for general dentists in the world and serves the needs and represents the interests of general dentists.
