Dr. Susan McMahon's Accomplishments
Accredited American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
Accredited dentists are professionals with proven and tested skills who have researched the latest materials and methods and mastered the latest techniques to provide the care and cosmetic results you expect. Becoming accredited involves a rigorous peer-reviewed competency clinical and written exam. Although there are thousands of dentists seeking accreditation, your AACD accredited dentist is special: there are fewer than 350 AACD accredited members in the world.
Fellow Academy of General Dentistry
AGD offers Fellowship (FAGD) awards to members who truly go above and beyond in their learning. To earn a Fellowship award, a dentist must complete at least 500 continuing dental education hours, pass a rigorous and comprehensive exam, and maintain AGD membership for three continuous years. Fellowship shows a career-long commitment to learning and expanding dental skills.

Guiding Leaders Inaugural Class
Guiding Leaders is an exciting professional development program that empowers women in dentistry to advance to new levels of leadership. It provides a dynamic environment where women can learn, grow, and make an impact in dentistry together. The program is a unique opportunity for women to cultivate their leadership skills and build long-lasting relationships on their journey toward becoming voices of influence.
This leadership development program was created by Stephenie Goddard, executive vice president at Glidewell. Goddard was inspired to develop the program after noticing a shift in dentistry. As of 2019, approximately 50% of dental school graduates are women. Guiding Leaders empowers this new generation of women to become leaders in their profession. This elite training program combines online and classroom courses that cover various topics, including emotional intelligence, finances, and goal setting.
International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics
The Academy for Dental Facial Esthetics is an honorary service organization whose mission is to foster interdisciplinary education in facial esthetics. The ADFE includes many outstanding individuals of various associated professions who desire to create new bridges and more knowledgeably serve patients.
