We are excited to announce our Dental Implant Surgeon, Dr. Mohamad Albik DDS, has achieved the designation of Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology / Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID). The ABOI/ID Diplomate designation symbolizes the highest level of competence in implant dentistry with only 500 clinicians achieving the accomplishment.
“To be included in the prestigious ranks of only 500 Diplomates of the ABOI/ID is a great honor and professional accomplishment. Implant Dentistry has been my focus and passion since first beginning my dental education and practice. To be included with colleagues who have been mentors in my journey is both humbling and rewarding.”
ABOI/ID Diplomate Certification Process
Certification as a Diplomate by the ABOI/ID attests to the fact a dentist has demonstrated a prominent level of knowledge, ability, and proficiency in implant dentistry through a rigorous examination process. According to the ABOI/ID, “The certification examination is psychometrically valid and reliable, and is administered under secure, fair, and unbiased conditions. Candidates must demonstrate in-depth knowledge, and proficient skills and abilities in both the surgical and restorative aspects of implant dentistry as well as in critical aftercare even if they perform only the surgical or restorative phase.”
To be considered for the diplomate certification, applicants must have a minimum of seven years of experience in the practice of Implant Dentistry and have completed no less than 75 implant procedures. Applicants must then successfully complete a rigorous two-part examination within four years. Part one of the process involves a comprehensive written examination which cover all aspects of dental implantology. Part two consists of an oral examination that includes standardized cases developed by the ABOI/ID and cases submitted by the candidate to the board. The candidate must submit eight cases for the board to review which have been restored and functional for a minimum of one year.
“After living with a fear of smiling due to missing teeth, Dr. Albik and his team were able to give me back my smile with dental implants. I can finally smile again without feeling any embarrassment! Thanks Dr. Albik!”
