Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
Drs. Roger and Bradley Briggs, D.D.S. of Briggs Family and Cosmetic Dentistry located in Scottsdale, Arizona were the first father/son team to be awarded Fellowship in The Academy of Dentistry International on October 21, 2012 at the San Francisco convocation ceremonies held at the USA Section Meeting. The dentists were two of 26 Fellows inducted into the Academy. In order to receive the honorable Fellowship in the Academy, an active Fellow of the Academy must nominate dentists who have demonstrated social responsibility to society through their dental profession.
The two dentists were nominated for Fellowship by a current member of the Academy for servicing the community and countries abroad. Mexico, India, Romania, and Nicaragua are countries where the father/son team provided dental relief work. “While it is a great honor to be awarded a fellowship in the academy of dentistry international, it does not change the fact that we have a health care crisis in this country and oral infection is affecting our communities and emergency rooms,” says Dr. Brad Briggs, “My father and I will continue to do the best we can to help by supporting programs run by the Arizona Dental Association, and personally donating our time and skills.” Currently, they are seeing patients through the Dream Center, a rehabilitation center run by First Assembly Church, who are in pain or have oral infections.
The Academy of Dentistry International is an international honorary society celebrating its 38th year, for dentists that distinguish themselves through sharing knowledge and continuing education in order to better serve the dental health needs and raise the quality of life in lesser-developed countries. The Academy also provides grants and funds for education, patient care, and improvement in the dental profession and around the world.
Dr. Roger Briggs has been practicing dentistry for over 35 years. In addition to the Academy, Dr. Briggs is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Arizona State Dental Association, the Arizona Dental Association, and the Central Arizona Dental Society, among others.
Dr. Bradley Briggs is a graduate of Loma Linda University of School of Dentistry and joined his father in 2004. Among others, Dr. Briggs is also an active member of the American Dental Association, the Arizona State Dental Association, the Central Arizona Dental Association, and the Arizona Dental Association, in addition to the Academy.
