While there are many practitioners who are not board certified that provide excellent care and service when performing oral surgery, in most cases, practitioners that do not have an extensive background in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery can’t provide the degree of expertise to placing dental implants or handling the complications that come with it.
What Does it Mean to be Board Certified?
The American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS) is the certifying board for the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery in the U.S. The objective of the ABOMS is to raise the standards of oral maxillofacial surgery through certification and maintenance of the certification process, helping to foster excellence and encourage learning. This helps to promote the delivery of excellent dental care.
The ABOMS certification process works to ensure the public that oral and maxillofacial surgeons who are certified have completed the rigorous peer evaluation process that requires surgeons to:
- Present and maintain the appropriate professional credentials
- Demonstrate the required training, knowledge, and experience
With these requirements, the ABOMS helps to promote the delivery of excellent dental care.
