What does Board Certified mean?

All periodontists must complete an additional two to three years of specialized training in periodontics following dental school. However, some periodontists opt to take the board-certification examination, which is offered by the American Board of Periodontology. A dentist who becomes board certified in periodontology is one who has made significant achievements beyond the mandatory educational requirements of the specialty. This includes demonstrating a comprehensive mastery of all phases of periodontal disease and treatment and in the placement of dental implants. Board certified periodontists are required to renew their certification every six years.
