Becoming a licensed, board certified physician means meeting the most rigorous training and continuing education offered in the field of medicine. Certification of physicians is a way of telling consumers that doctors with this credentialing have successfully completed approved training and have passed an evaluation process assessing their ability to provide quality patient care in their specialty. Board certification is a good indication that your doctor has made a commitment to continuing education and is keeping up with the latest findings in his field.

What is an Oral Surgeon?
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the only dental specialists recognized by the American Dental Association who are surgically trained in a hospital-based residency program for a minimum of four years. Oral surgeons can be single degree, dental license only, or dual degree, carry both a medical and dental license. They train alongside medical residents in internal medicine, general surgery and anesthesiology, and spend time in otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), plastic surgery, emergency medicine, trauma surgery, and other specialty areas. This training focuses almost completely on the bone, skin and muscle of the face, mouth and jaw. Oral and facial surgeons have knowledge and expertise that uniquely qualifies them to diagnose and treat a number of functional and esthetic conditions in this anatomical area.
