Meredith dentist earns Board Certification

MEREDITH — The American Board of General Dentistry announced that George T. Felt, DDS, MAGD of Meredith has passed his board exams and is now a Board Certified General Dentist.

Board Certification signified the pinnacle of achievement in general dentistry. In attaining board certification, a dentist demonstrates a commitment to providing the best possible patient care through a lifetime of dedication to his or her continuing education.

"On behalf of the American Board of General Dentistry, I would like to congratulate you on passing the 2014 ABGD Oral Examination. As such, you have now successfully achieved the status of Board Certification. This is a significant professional achievement and each member of the Board congratulates your effort," said Nicholas J. Miniotis, DDS, MAGD, ABGD, President, ABGD.

The requirements for Board Certification include successful completion of post-doctoral residency in general dentistry (GPR), or successful completion of the requirements for the Master Certificate from the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Felt met both of these requirements. Upon completion of the educational requirements, the dentist must then pass a written examination. Finally, one must demonstrate an understanding and deep knowledge of all phases of dentistry by undertaking a demanding Oral Examination in which all areas of the profession are considered. Only on completion of all these challenges is the dentist awarded Board Certification. 

Currently only one percent of general dentists have achieved this prestigious Board Certification status.
