Diplomate, American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry
For nearly 50 years, the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID) has made it their mission to enhance the standards of oral implantology, while refining the art and science of implant dentistry. By encouraging the study and techniques of implantology, the ABOI/ID offers improved care and results for implant dentistry patients.
Through the process of becoming ABOI/ID Diplomates, Drs. Suzanna and Trinh demonstrate and symbolize a higher level of expertise in implantology, which establishes an elevated standard of dental implant knowledge, ability and accomplishment.
What Is Implant Dentistry?
Dental implants have changed the face of dentistry (and patients) by allowing lost or severely damaged teeth to be restored with a prosthetic tooth. With this restoration, you benefit from a new tooth that looks, feels, fits and functions just like your natural tooth did.
A dental implant is simply an artificial tooth root, typically made of titanium, which is placed into your jawbone. A new customized crown can then be anchored onto this post, creating a seamless, natural smile. Dental implants are an excellent option, not just for patients who have lost a single tooth, but also to permanently seat dental bridges or dentures.
Why Choose an ABO/ID Diplomate?
ABO/ID Diplomates must demonstrate and prove a higher level of implant dentistry expertise for board certification. Along with an active dental license, candidates must undergo:
- A comprehensive written examination
- Submission of 10 clinical cases for review
- An oral examination to establish and illustrate their superior level of dental implant knowledge and skill
By becoming ABO/ID Diplomates, Drs. Suzanna and Trinh indicate their desire to offer the best dental implant benefits possible to our patients in the Bay Area.
