Dr. Marianna Kovitch recently received the prestigious Fellowship Award from the Academy of General Dentistry. The award recognizes an ACG member’s commitment to excellence in dental education.
Kovitch was recognized with 340 other “dentists looking to provide the highest quality of dental care by remaining current in their profession,” according to a press release.
To qualify, Kovitch completed 500 hours of continuing dental education, passed a comprehensive written exam and fulfilled three years of continuing membership with the AGD. She joins “an elite group of more than 17,105 members of the dental community who understand that great smiles and good oral health for their patients are the result of going above and beyond basic requirements. The Fellowship Award symbolizes excellence in the dental profession and a commitment to providing exceptional patient care.”
AGD president Connie White said, “Only 6 percent of all dentists have achieved this designation, and we are proud to honor Dr. Kovitch for her commitment and dedication to provide her patients with advanced and exceptional oral health care.
She is exceeding industry requirements and paving a path of success, distinguishing herself professionally amongst her peers and exemplifying her allegiance to the dental community.”
Kovitch is a member of Temple Sinai and her children attend Jewish schools in Cobb County. She is a Russian immigrant who came to the U.S. in 1989 “like so many others in order to have the chance of being a doctor and getting awards without having Jewish persecution at every step.”
She graduated from the Medical College of Georgia in 2011, is board-certified in dental sleep medicine and holds a fellowship from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
