Dr. Galstan is pictured receiving his Fellowship in the International College of Dentists (ICD) on November 1, 2013, at the Annual Meeting of the American Dental Association. The ICD is the oldest and largest international honorary dental organization established in 1928 with over 12,000 members
(designated as Fellows) around the globe.
Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and is granted in recognition of a dentist’s “outstanding professional achievement, meritorious service and dedication to the continued progress of dentistry for the benefit of humankind ”. Prior to being recognized as a Fellow of the ICD, the candidate's qualifications and achievements are evaluated by a series of credential committees in order to insure that he or she is deserving of this high honor and adhere to the ICD motto, goals and objectives.
