Academy of General Dentistry honors one of our doctors

Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), a professional association of more than 37,000 general dentists dedicated to providing quality dental care and oral health education to the public, is pleased to announce that Ben Bratcher, DDS, MAGD, of Canton, Texas, received the association’s 2012 Mastership Award during the AGD 2012 Annual Meeting & Exhibits, held June 21 to 24, in Philadelphia.

The Mastership Award is the highest honor available at the AGD and one of the most respected designations within the profession. To accomplish this goal, Dr. Bratcher completed 1,100 hours of continuing dental education.

As a recipient of the Mastership Award, Dr. Bratcher joins more than 2,300 active AGD Masters who understand that providing great smiles and good oral health for their patients are the result of going above and beyond basic requirements.

“We are proud to honor Dr. Bratcher for his commitment to continuing education in his quest to provide quality dental care and oral health education to his patients,” says AGD President Jeffrey M. Cole, DDS, MBA, FAGD. “There are more than 169,000 general dentists in the United States and Canada and less than two percent of those are Masters with the AGD. It’s a remarkable accomplishment for Dr. Bratcher.”

Dr. Bratcher graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1993 and currently practices dentistry in Canton, Texas. In addition to the AGD, Dr. Bratcher is a member of the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dr. Bratcher and his wife Julie have three children named Samantha, Rebekah, and Juliana.
