WHY CHOOSE A BOARD CERTIFIED ORAL SURGEON?

While all practicing surgeons must be licensed in order to offer their services to patients, Board Certified doctors are recognized as having achieved and continue to maintain the highest standards within their profession. They voluntarily decided to meet additional standards above and beyond what standard licensing requires. Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons who advertise themselves as Diplomates of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery are also Board Certified.

In addition to submitting a portfolio of cases demonstrating the Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon has experience with a broad array of surgical concerns the board certification process also requires an intensive written examination as well as a lengthy oral examination to test the surgeon’s level of immediate recall knowledge. Thus, board certification represents that the Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon has demonstrated a high level of dedication and hard work above and beyond standard expectations. It represents someone strongly dedicated to providing his or her clients with the highest quality in care and service.

What this means to you, if you are in need of an Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon, is that you can rest easy in the knowledge that your health or the health of your loved one is in well-trained, constantly updated, professional hands simply by checking whether they have been board certified or are distinguished as a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
