What Do FAGD and FICD Mean?

“FAGD” stands for Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, and “FICD” stands for Fellow of the International College of Dentists. These are difficult designations to earn, but Dr. Watson has earned both. In fact, he was one of the youngest Georgia dentists to ever achieve FAGD status.

For dentists to be chosen as FAGD or FICD, they must demonstrate exceptional professional integrity, have a track record of excellent patient results, and be active contributors to the field. If you’re looking for a new dentist, know that someone with FAGD or FICD has a reputation backed by thousands of other professionals.
