The cornerstone of PAGD’s continuing education program is call PEAK. This nationally-recognized program was established in 1986 to help members achieve their Fellowship and Mastership awards from the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) in a four year cycle. Through two four-day sessions a year, you can earn nearly 400 of the participation hours required for the next level of accreditation. In less than one year, you’ll earn the necessary credits for full state licensure. 

There are two PEAK tracks in Pennsylvania. Each meet in the fall and spring in various parts of the state.  There is no fee to join. Simply attend two meetings in a year and you are part of the program.  

Interested in joining PEAK, call April Hutcheson at 717-737-4682 or
