All FDA members go through a thorough licensing process and are held to a moral and ethical standard by their peers and the Florida Board of Dentistry. When you choose an FDA-member dentist, you can be assured that individual is actively involved in furthering his or her own professional development, and improving the oral health of their patients and all Floridians. FDA members engage in sharing best practices with their peers, advocate for improving access to dental care and have access to more than 500 hours of continuing education to keep them at the forefront of state-of-the-art dental techniques.
American Dental Association: Founded in 1859, the not-for-profit American Dental Association (ADA) is the nation’s largest dental association. The ADA is the leading source of oral health related information for dentists and their patients. The ADA is committed to its members and to the improvement of oral health for the public. The ADA’s vision is to be the recognized leader on oral health with its mission to help all members succeed. You may be most familiar with the ADA for the more than 300 oral health products, including toothpastes, dental floss, toothbrushes, mouth rinses, denture adherents and chewing gums which carry the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
Academy of General Dentistry: Founded in 1952, the AGD is a professional organization of general dentists who are dedicated to the goal of lifelong learning.

Members of the Academy of General Dentistry are able to access the most up-to-date educational resources to share with patients and the community.
