Welcome to The American Board of Periodontology
The mission of the American Board of Periodontology is to certify the achievement of in-depth knowledge and proficiency in the full scope of periodontology and dental implant surgery through examination and periodic recertification.
The vision of the American Board of Periodontology is that all periodontists achieve Board certification and that Diplomates of the Board are universally recognized by the public, the dental profession, the medical community, and third-party payers as the preferred providers of periodontal and dental implant surgical care.
