Board-Certified Oral Surgeon – Albuquerque, NM

What Does Being
Board-Certified Mean?

Typically, oral and facial surgeons complete four years of dental school along with a lengthy and intense four to six-year residency, where they gain priceless, experiential knowledge from mentors and patients. However, whenever a surgeon completes their training, it doesn’t make them “board-certified.” To become an oral surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, they must complete a difficult evaluation process that proves their expertise. To make that happen, they’ll need to pass a peer evaluation and examinations, regularly complete continuing education, and renew their board certification every year.

How Does Board-Certification
Benefit You?

When you choose a board-certified oral surgeon, you can count on the fact that their skills and expertise have been thoroughly vetted by their peers, who are also experts in their field. This can provide you with some peace-of-mind when it comes to knowing the quality of care that you’ll receive from them.
