HURON — Brenon Farmer, DDS, of Huron, received the prestigious Mastership Award during the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) convocation ceremony on June 9 in New Orleans, La.
Farmer was among 68 other recipients of the award, which is presented in recognition of commitment to excellence in dental education.
The Mastership Award is the highest honor available in the AGD and one of the most respected designations in the profession. To accomplish this, Farmer completed 1,100 hours of continuing dental education in the 16 disciplines of dentistry, including 400 hours dedicated to hands-on skills and techniques.
To put this amount of education in perspective, the state of South Dakota requires 100 hours of continuing dental education every five years.
“The AGD is proud to honor Dr. Farmer for his commitment to continuing education and dedication to providing his patients with advanced and exceptional oral health care,” says AGD President Dr. Manuel Cordero, DDS.
Farmer graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2010 and currently practices dentistry at Countryside Dental. He is a member of the American Dental Association, South Dakota Dental Association and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.
He and his wife, Kristie, have six children ages 16, 14, 11, 10, 4 and 3.
