Dr. Slootsky is a proud MAGD, but what does that actually mean?
MAGD is an acronym for Master in the Academy of General Dentistry. Before becoming a Master, Dr. Alan Slootsky was an FAGD, or Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. Both titles show that Dr. Slootsky has a deep level of commitment to bettering the patient experience, continuing education, staying current with the latest in dental technique, and being a leader to his peers.
BECOMING A MAGD
This high honor is not handed out to just anyone. Dr. Slootsky has been selected by his fellow dentists. He has earned at least 1,100 approved continuing education credits and passed a 400-question comprehensive exam.
The Academy of General Dentists is made up of 35,000 doctors, and to be an MAGD is the highest recognition possible for the entire professional organization. It is not only strenuous because of the amount of time and effort it requires, but it is also incredibly rewarding. Dr. Slootsky has had the opportunity to study advanced dental techniques in many areas of dentistry and has earned the respect and admiration of his peers along the way.
WHAT DOES MAGD MEAN FOR YOU?
Unlike some superficial awards, to earn the distinction as an MAGD shows that a dentist is dedicated to his patients. Each course, each test, and each learning experience helped Dr. Slootsky improve his practice and bring better care to his patients. You benefit from this honor each time you sit in the patient chair at Restorative and Implant Dentistry.
