CHICAGO (June 25, 2012)—The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) is pleased to announce that Jeffrey M. Cole, DDS, MBA, FAGD, of Wilmington, Del., was installed as president of the association during the AGD 2012 Annual Meeting & Exhibits, held June 21 to 24 in Philadelphia.
“It is an exciting time in the field of dentistry and it’s an honor to lead the AGD’s 37,000 members,” says Dr. Cole. “Members can expect that the organization will continue to work tirelessly to advocate and protect the rights of general dentists, as well as work to ensure that the public receives the highest quality of oral care. The AGD will continue to make the public aware of the dangers that can result from receiving treatment from alternative oral health care providers; specifically, that these providers do not have the education necessary to make diagnoses or to perform irreversible surgical dental procedures.”
