Certification Process

The American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry's (ABOI/ID) examination process measures the in-depth knowledge, proficient skills, and abilities required for practitioners to provide comprehensive, safe, and effective implant and implant-related procedures to their patients.

The American Academy of Implant Dentistry chartered the ABOI/ID in 1969.  The objective of the American Board of Oral Implantology/ Implant Dentistry is to elevate the standards related to dental implantology through a certification and maintenance of certification process for dental practitioners.

The certification process is comprehensive and consists of a written and oral examination, covering all aspects of dental implantology.  All applicants must provide evidence of an active dental license from the appropriate authority enabling the individual to practice dentistry where he/she resides.
