What is a Dental Implant Specialist?

The Diplomate certificate from the American Board of Oral Implantology is the highest level of credential in implant dentistry, obtained through approximately 5 years of additional training after dental school. The ABOI/ID, chartered in 1969 by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, aims to certify individuals with the highest standards of competency in implant dentistry and ensure ongoing knowledge and skill maintenance for public safety. Additionally, the ABOI/ID is a member of the American Board of Dental Specialties, solidifying its standing within the field.

Dr. Tedders received his Diplomate status from the ABOI in May 2015, followed by the Fellow status from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry in 2017.
