To sit for the examination, each doctor was required to practice implant dentistry for at least seven years and prove his implant expertise.  To earn the title of Diplomate, the doctors presented cases for review by an expert panel of implant dentists and passed a series of written and oral examinations sponsored by the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry.

The ABOI/ID’s examination process measures the in-depth knowledge, proficient skills, and abilities required for practitioners to provide comprehensive, safe, and effective oral implant care for the public.

 The ABOI/ID was founded in 1969 and conducts examinations to determine the qualifications and competence of dentists who voluntarily apply to the Board for certification.
