California AGD Resources Facebook Group
We are inviting California AGD members to join us and start supporting each other during this difficult time. We created the California AGD Resources Facebook Group, available only to California AGD members. We are all general dentists in the trenches facing the same challenges. We all can benefit from hearing each other’s strategies and tips to survive during this crisis and to get ready to thrive when it is over. Collectively, we have unlimited wealth of knowledge and experience. Share what you know, and ask what you want to know.
