The American Board of Oral Implantology/ Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID) is an independent organization that is sponsored by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Its mission is to elevate the standards and to advance the science and art of oral implantology/implant dentistry by encouraging its study and improving its practice.
Diplomates of the ABOI/ID represent a diverse cross section of clinicians: private practice and academic, surgical and restorative. Specialties represented among ABOI Diplomates include general practice, oral and maxillofacial surgery, periodontology and prosthodontics.
The ABOI/ID examination is open to all qualified implant practitioners regardless of specialty or organizational affiliation, i.e., applicants and Diplomates are not required to belong to any implant membership organization.
