The feeling of accomplishment:
In 1996, I received my Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) having completed over 500 hours of continuing education and passing a Fellowship Exam.
In 2001, I received my Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD) having completed over 700 more hours of continuing education and 400 hours of participation contineing education classes.
In 2018, I will recieve my Lifetime Learning and Service Recognition award (LLSR). Having completed another 627 hours of continuing education and 150 hours of participation education classes while volunteering several hundred hours to Dentistry and the community. I never added it all up, but it comes in around 365 days in the classroom since i graduated dental school. It has taken a lot of time but i could not imagine practicing and pursuing the art of dentistry any other way.
Hey we had our annual Christmas dinner at Lorenzo’s Pizza Kitchen “A Taste of Rome” excellent!
