On July 30 2011, the Academy of General Dentistry bestowed the Fellowship Award to Dr. Lenny Arias during a special convocation ceremony held at the AGD 2011 Annual Meeting & Exhibits, July 28-31, in San Diego, Calif. The Fellowship Award is present to dentists who seek to provide the highest quality of dental care by remaining current in their profession. To receive this honor, dentists must complete 500 hours of continuing dental education, pass a comprehensive exam, and fulfill three years of cintinuous membership in the AGD. In 2011, the AGD bestowed the Fellowship Award to 315 dentists. Dentists who have earned Fellowship from the AGD make up a distinct group - they represent less than 1% of all the general dentists practicing in the United States and Canada.

Spare Time

As an owner of a private dental practice, I commit a lot of time to running and maintaining a business, as well attending advanced continuing education seminars. Most of my spare time outside of dentistry is devoted to being a mother to Sofia, and a wife to my husband Justin. I enjoy indulging in eating a variety of good meals, which is why I must also enjoy staying fit, which I do. I used to be a runner, but now I enjoy group fitness classes or at-home workouts. I hope to travel more as time permits; I like to be immersed in the culture when I visit other countries. I love to hear about the travels that our patients experience, it fills me with joy when they share their stories with me. I would love to retire close to the beach, the sounds of the waves bring about an inexplicable peace to my soul.
