Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 


The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) is a professional association of more than 38,000 members exclusively dedicated to representing the interests and serving the needs of general dentists.

The AGD promotes oral health programs and fosters continued proficiency of general dentists through its renowned dental education programs. Not only does the AGD provide a plethora of Continuing Education opportunities but many of its members go on to attain Fellowships and Masterships through the AGD.

The AGD Tufts chapter will be the organization of choice for members wishing to pursue or maintain a role in general dentistry across New England.
