The AzAGD Executive Board consists of volunteers from the dental health community. Board members are the primary drivers of the local constituent (Arizona) components of the national organization, Academy of General Dentistry. These board members serve 2-year terms and organize all the events and activities related to the Arizona chapter.

The AzAGD is always looking for Member-at-Large volunteers willing to serve on small projects such as organizing a specific CE event, or a social event, simply providing input on what activities to organize. Please email if you are interested in what opportunities there are to give back to the AGD and the dental community.
