Dr. George Landress is only one of several hundred doctors to achieve both Fellowship and Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry. The Academy of General Dentistry is an international organization of over 40,000 general dentists. Members are committed to continuing dental education to give patients the best possible care.
Dr. Landress received the Fellowship Award in 1986 after completing more than 600 hours of continuing education courses and passing a rigorous, comprehensive Fellowship examination. This earned him the Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (F.A.G.D.) title. He received the A.G.D.’s prestigious Master of the Academy of General Dentistry (M.A.G.D.) title in 1998 during convocation ceremonies in Boston, Massachusetts.
Earning the Mastership award involved first completing Fellowship and then completing additional extensive courses, most of which were hands-on courses in 16 dental disciplines totaling more than 1400 hours. The Mastership Award is the highest distinction an A.G.D. member can achieve, and he is the only dentist in Danbury to achieve a Mastership certification. Dr. Landress is from Franklin Square, New York, and has been practicing in Danbury, Connecticut, since 1980. He received his B.S. (Bachelor of Science in Business Administration) degree from Boston University and keeps his C.P.A. (certified public accountant) license current in N.Y. He earned his D.D.S. (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
