What is the New England Master Track Program?
NEMTP was developed in 1991
to easily and effectively meet the hands-on continuing education requirement for AGD Mastership.
Since the program's
inception, a new Master Track group starts, consisting of approximately 25-30 participants, every 2 1/2 years and goes through
a series of 10 courses to fulfill the 360-hour mandatory and 40-hour elective discipline participation requirements.
often and where do we meet?
Programs are given in the spring and fall of each year over a period of
5 years in Nashua, NH--with a final presentation at the eleventh session.
What is the
format of the courses?
Each course starts on Friday and ends on Sunday. The first two days are devoted
to lecture on a specific discipline or set of disciplines. The third day is spent presenting the results of your course assignment
from the previous meeting. Many members meet on Thursday evenings on our private floor lounge to socialize, discuss,
network, and relax.
How many hours will I earn?
Generally you will spend
8 hours in lecture on both Friday and Saturday and 8 hours on Sunday revewing the presentations. Participants can earn up
to 24 hours. If the homework and the presentation is successfully completed participants can earn up to 16 more hours. Totalling

often difficult to find on an individual basis and would require more time and expense if done outside of a standardized format.
many dentists have achieved Fellowship and Mastership?

in the United States have achieved Fellowship, and less than 1% of practicing general dentists in the United States have achieved
How much does it cost?
The NEMTP tuition
is $7,950, currently divided over 10-three day courses and a final presentation day (1/5 of dues due each March session),
exclusive of room and board), making the per hour cost of continuing education a real bargain. This is especially true if
you consider the quality of the courses and the pearls one always picks up talking with other dentists in a close environment!
Because NEMTP is a study group format, it must be emphasized that once you join the Track you will be financially obligated
whether you can attend a particular weekend or not. Sessions missed can be made up at no extra charge during the subsequent
