Phoenix Dentist Joins One Percent of the Nation’s Dentists

Dr. Adhikari receives Fellowship Award from The Academy of General Dentistry

Online PR News – 16-January-2015 – PHOENIX, Ariz. – Dr. Prabidhi Adhikari recently earned the Fellowship Award from The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), after completing 500 credit hours beyond her doctorate in dentistry. This distinction places a select group of only one percent of dentists in the United States.

Dr. Adhikari will formally receive her award from the AGD in spring 2015 at a ceremony held in San Francisco. The AGD is an association of more than 37,000 general dentists who provide dental care and oral health education to the public.

After graduating from New York University’s School of Dentistry in 2009, Dr. Adhikari continued her education at the University of California, Los Angeles with an advanced education residency. There she specialized in complex treatment planning and managing difficult patient cases. She graduated from UCLA in 2010 and joined a private dental practice in Los Angeles before moving to Phoenix in 2011. Dr. Adhikari joined Dr. John Dougherty of Artistic Dental at the Biltmore in 2012.

“We are very proud of Dr. Adhikari’s achievement, very few dentists reach this level of training” states Dougherty. “We are committed to staying on top the latest treatments, so we can offer our patients the best overall care.”

In 2012 Dr. Dougherty received the Mastership Award at the Academy of General Dentistry’s (AGD) Annual Meeting. The Mastership Award is the highest honor available at the AGD and one of the most respected designations within the dental profession. To accomplish this goal, Dr. Dougherty completed 1,100 hours of continuing dental education.

The Fellowship Award must be completed first in order to pursue the Mastership Award.

Artistic Dental is located in the Biltmore area of Central Phoenix at 2333 E. Campbell Avenue. To learn more about Dr. Adhikari and Artistic Dental visit or call (602) 840-5400.
