On September 8, 2019, Dr. Terry Brewick was inducted as the International President of the Pierre Fauchard Academy at the annual meeting of the American Dental Association. We are honored to have Dr. Brewick at Governor’s Park Dental Group, and congratulate him on this honor!
The Pierre Fauchard Academy is an honorary dental service organization that was founded in 1936 by Dr. Elmer S. Best, a Minnesota dentist. Troubled by the proprietary nature of many dental publications, he wanted to help the profession gain control of its own literature and assure its independence from commercial interests. His passionate concern for the search for knowledge and the raising of professional standards laid the ground – work for the beginning of the
Academy. This attracted outstanding dental researchers and teachers to its ranks, and led to a continuing role in fostering dental science.
The Academy is named after Pierre Fauchard of France (1678-1761), who is recognized as the “Father of Modern Dentistry” for raising dentistry to a profession. He wrote a book named “Le Chirurgien Dentiste, ou Traité des Dents” which was the first true textbook of dentistry.
Our mission as Fellows in the Pierre Fauchard Academy is to recognize and grow leaders in the dental profession, their communities and society.We accomplish this by consistently focusing on professionalism, integrity, and ethics worldwide, by our own conduct as worthy role models, by the advancement of dentistry to the highest level, by supporting and honoring colleagues for their distinguished work, research, contributions, and public service, and by providing excellence in programs, education, and leadership in oral health care.
At Governor’s Park Dental Group, Dr. Brewick and his team are committed to providing the best dental care for our patients and strive to continue to learn and grow.
