This two year AGD Mastership Track Preparation Course has been offered successfully for 26 years and 311 dentists have completed the program.

You, as a principle-based, value-driven dental professional, are the key to forging a committed dental community. Our job, then, as your partner in professional development and life-long learning is to provide a quality venue for this committed dental community to come together. The Comprehensive Dentistry Program provides that quality venue for the college to bring together faculty, alumni, course participants and the dental community at large. If we are successful in serving the dental community in this way, then we will have been successful in advancing our mission of excellence through teaching, research and service. Sincerely, Teresa A.
