Meet Dr. Bird

After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia, Dr. Bird attended The Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry where he earned his DDS degree. Upon graduation he completed a General Practice Residency at the Hunter Holmes McGuire Veterans Administration Medical Center. Dr. Bird is a member of several dental study clubs, the Academy of General Dentistry and believes strongly in continuing education.

Dr. Bird is married with two children and spends his time coaching youth sports and assisting with other youth acitivities. He enjoys the outdoors, taking at home college courses and is an avid sports fan.

Dr. Bird achieved the Fellowship Award in the Academy of General Dentistry.  

A general dentist who is a "Fellow" in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) has been recognized by other general dentists as a leader and an example to other dentists of the importance of quality continuing dental education to patient care. Fellows have accepted the charge to keep abreast of advances in dentistry for the benefit of patients and the betterment of dentistry. They serve as mentors and leaders to other dentists pursuing continuing dental education.

In the AGD's 60 year history (2012), only 15,343 dentists have ever earned Fellowship. This is quite a low number of qualifying dentists, especially when one breaks the numbers down to reveal on average only 4-5 dentists per state per year achieve Fellowship. Less than 5% of all dentists ever achieve Fellowship. When your dentist has achieved the Fellowship Award, you can be assured that they are dedicated to providing the finest care in general dentistry.
