For patients in need of dental implants, tooth extraction, and many other procedures that may require oral surgery, it is recommended to choose practices that include oral surgeons on staff who are certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS). Why is this credential important? Because it is a strong indication that the treatment you receive will be provided with exceptionally high standards of safety, care, and expertise.
An oral surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery lets patients know that the doctor has had extensive education and training beyond what is required for a dental license. Both of our oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Michael W. Golding and Dr. J. Gregory Sabol, are board-certified. To achieve certification, our doctors completed additional, specialty education after they earned their Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees. This extensive additional training allows them to perform treatments that many general dentists are not able to perform. They also had to undergo rigorous testing requirements and had to prove their level of experience in order to become ABOMS-certified.
Ultimately, board-certified oral surgeons can give patients peace-of-mind that the care they will receive is from providers who have gone the extra mile to ensure they adhere to maximum levels of safety and quality.
