Dr. Booth was awarded Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry in 2004. Achieving Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry is one of the few added distinctions a general dentist can achieve. The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) is the only professional association exclusively serving the interests and needs of the general dentist. To earn Mastership in the AGD, dentists must take more than 1,100 hours of educational courses in various disciplines. The award is then presented to general dentists in a formal ceremony; Dr. Booth is one of the less than 1 percent of general dentists who have achieved this honor.
