“Becoming an AGD Master means a dentist has taken part in some of the most rigorous continuing dental education programs today,” said AGD President, Connie White, DDS. “Less than 2 percent of all dentists have achieved this designation and we are proud to honor Dr. Warren F. Jesek for his commitment and dedication to providing his patients with advanced and exceptional oral health care. He is exceeding industry requirements and paving a path of success, distinguishing himself professionally amongst his peers and exemplifying his allegiance to the dental community.”
