MAGD: To attain Mastership, members must first be Fellows in the AGD. To earn a Fellowship Award, a dentist must earn a minimum of 500 approved continuing dental education credits and pass a comprehensive 400-question examination. Then dentists must earn an additional 600 approved continuing education credits, meeting minimum requirements in certain dental disciplines, of which 400 hours are hands-on courses. Thus, a Master of the AGD has taken a total of 1,100 hours of continuing education. A Master has studied 16 disciplines in dentistry, such as Periodontics, Orthodontics, and Implants.

Dr. Pukenas has been chosen by his fellow colleagues as one of the best practitioners in the State of New Jersey for five consecutive years. This recognition is based on a poll conducted by New Jersey Monthly Magazine who asked over 6000 dentists in the State who they considered being New Jersey’s best practitioners.
I believe that dental medicine is an integral cornerstone of the healthcare profession. Possessing the knowledge and skills to diagnose and treat oral diseases is a great responsibility that has led me to dedicate my professional life to treating such conditions, resolving problems, reversing damage, and restoring teeth and gums to the healthiest possible state. In addition, I help to educate all my patients, providing them with the practical daily guidelines necessary to maintain good oral health. For me, the most exciting part about dentistry is being able to improve a patient’s self-confidence by changing their smile. A beautiful smile transcends all languages.
