When it comes to your health, you want to be sure that you are receiving the highest possible quality of care. This makes finding an oral surgeon who is highly skilled, experienced and prepared to handle any situation that may develop with your treatment absolutely crucial. A Board Certified oral surgeon has completed rigorous education and training to achieve the highest practicing standards, allowing you to feel confident in your treatments and be certain that you are receiving excellent care.
All oral and maxillofacial surgeons are specialists, meaning that they have completed several years of additional training following dental school in order to learn the skills needed to provide oral surgical procedures quickly, accurately and conveniently. Unlike other dentists and dental specialists, oral surgeons also complete rotations with anesthesiologists in a hospital setting during their training, receiving the training and certifications necessary to administer general anesthesia. Board certification takes this specialized training a step further to make an oral surgeon among the most qualified and highly trained individuals in their field.
What does board certified mean?
Board certification means that an oral surgeon has completed a lengthy and difficult evaluation process through the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS), the certifying board for all oral surgeons in the United States. The goal of this board is to maintain and improve oral surgery standards as well as providing continuing education and recertification for oral surgeons who have achieved board certification status. The board certification process includes written and oral examinations as well as a review of surgical expertise by a panel of peers to prove that an oral surgeon has achieved the highest level of competence. Board Certified oral surgeons are highly committed to lifelong learning and to excellence in patient care.
