Being Board Certified Implantologist is something great it is a commitment that you make to your country , your patients, and yourself. It means that you have taken the time to re-assess the knowledge and experience that has been acquired during your dental education or over the period of time that you have been practicing and taking continuing education courses. It provides the opportunity to mentally collate all of the information that you have gathered in university,in research, and in practice and place yourself at the pinnacle of knowledge both clinically and didactically. It means that you made significant achievements beyond the mandatory educational requirements of the science of implantology and allows you to provide the highest evidence-based standard of care for your patients. It will set the stage for continuing your education, as the science of Oral Implantology /Implant dentistry an evolving process and the “state of the art” of practice today will change in a few years, even though the biological basics will remain the same. Being Board Certified is for now; however, with the Recertification program that the Board provides, the “now” will continue to remain the “state of the art.
Challenging the Board is for you, and will be an enjoyable experience, as it will show you as well as your examiners the depth of your understanding of the art and science of oral implantology .The Certifying Examination as well as the periodic Recertification Program will make you proud of what you know didactically and proud of your level of practice.

As a Chairman of the executive examination committee of the International Board Of Oral Implantology (IBOI)and a Board Examiner having graduated from my dental school 30 years ago and from my PhD in oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 15 years ago, I realize that learning is a never-ending process. I learn when I study to prepare the examinations, and I learn from our students and candidates when I administer the Certifying Examination, and I learn from my patients. My fervent hope and expectation is that many of the unanswered questions that we have in implant dentistry will be answered by you our Diplomates. It is you who will keep the future of the Oral implantology /implant dentistry bright.
Good luck in your future career
