About Us

PAGD represents the most highly-trained doctors in general dentistry. Our members have committed to continuing education and training at levels not required by even the State Board of Dentistry. They are the Masters and Fellows of our profession.

With more than 1,600 members, PAGD is the largest organization in Pennsylvania to solely represent the interests of general dentists.

PAGD is a constituent of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD). The core purpose of the AGD is to advance the value and excellence of general dentistry through a commitment to education of general dentists and their patients. The AGD’s goal is to be the premier, worldwide organization of choice for all members of the general-dentistry community, working together to ensure optimal oral health.
