2—There is a responsibility to the dental profession
3—There is a responsibility to the AGD
4—There is a responsibility to community
Master credentials speak for themselves within the dental profession, but Masters must actively extend their influence and talents into the communities that they serve. Masters should exemplify dedication, concern, compassion and understanding in the community in the manner of unselfish service. Doing so will enhance the professional image among those we serve, and those who might enter our profession tomorrow.
Masters have made a commitment to the highest professional standards and the ideals of the AGD. It is a commitment that will last throughout their professional lives.
