To be a great dental implant dentist you need more than just a professional dentistry qualification. Assessing candidacy, determining the location for the implants to be placed, and performing the procedure requires expert knowledge and understanding.
When doing your research to find an implant dentist, you should be sure to ask them about where they did their dental implant training. You should also ask if he/she is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI), American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), and the American Board of Oral Implantology (ABOI). Certification would suggest that the dentist has demonstrated the required standard of knowledge, ability, and proficiency in implant dentistry, which is tested via a rigorous examination process.
