WHAT IS A BOARD CERTIFIED ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL SURGEON?
Upon graduation, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon is qualified to practice. However, board certification is a marker of a specialist who is recognized by his peers as having achieved the highest standards within the profession.
A Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is exactly the same as being "Board Certified". This title is acquired with a great deal of dedication and hard work above and beyond the regular educational program of an oral surgeon.
The board certification process requires the oral and maxillofacial surgeon to undergo a series of requirements and examinations in order to acquire board certification status. The first requirement is submission of cases covering a broad area of surgical expertise. The second hurdle is an intensive written examination, and the third level is a lengthy oral examination. The status of "board certified" is evidence that the oral surgeon has met the highest requirements of competence within the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery.
