Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons have successfully completed a rigorous peer evaluation process by requiring surgeons to present and maintain appropriate professional credentials, and demonstrate the requisite training, experience and knowledge.

While all practicing surgeons must be licensed in order to offer their services to patients, Board Certified doctors are recognized as having achieved and continue to maintain the highest standards within their profession. Board Certification by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS) requires successful completion of the Qualifying Examination and Oral Certifying Applications and Examinations. Once certified by ABOMS, the Candidate will become a Diplomate of the Board and must participate in the Certification Maintenance process. Diplomates of the American Board of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS) are committed to lifelong learning, keeping current in knowledge and skills, and practicing in a safe and contemporary manner. ABOMS assures their Diplomates’ commitment to these goals through the Certification Maintenance process.

If you are in need of an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, you can be sure you are in the hands of a well-trained, constantly updated, professional simply by checking whether they have been board certified or are distinguished as a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
