High-Quality Placement of Dental Implants in Fremont
The staff of Fremont Cosmetic Dentistry is proud of Dr. Selway for achieving not just one, but two significant awards recently, both in the field of implant dentistry. He was awarded an associate fellowship in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and a fellowship in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. These awards represent the hard work and dedication to his craft that Dr. Selway has put in over the past years, as he trained to become world-class at placing dental implants.
Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID)
Dr. Selway has been credentialed as an Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID). To achieve this, he was required to complete over 300 hours of training in implant dentistry and demonstrate clinical experience in the placement of dental implants. He also needed to pass several rigorous examinations, including a written exam, an oral exam, and a series of case presentations (for which he had to travel to Chicago to present to a panel of experts). As you can see, the process of becoming an associate fellow of AAID is long and difficult, and Dr. Selway has clearly demonstrated his commitment to excellence in patient care through this achievement.
Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI)
This is impressive on its own, but Dr. Selway has achieved even more in the field of implant dentistry. He was also chosen as a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. This required him to demonstrate his skill in the field through case studies, as well as to undergo training in implant dentistry. To maintain this credential, Dr. Selway will be continuing to develop his skills and learn about advances in the field of implant dentistry; he’s required to take continuing education courses in order to maintain his status as a Fellow. (Since he loves implant dentistry, Dr. Selway will enjoy fulfilling this requirement!)
What do these awards mean?
More and more patients with missing teeth are choosing dental implants to restore their smiles, because of the many benefits that implants offer. However, though the placement of implants is common, that doesn’t mean that it’s easy. If you want an implant that will last, with a placement process that’s as safe as possible, then you need to choose a dentist with extra training in the field of implant dentistry. The AAID and ICOI credentials are evidence of this advanced education and attainment of skills.
These credentials that Dr. Selway has earned demonstrate his expertise in implant dentistry. He’s gone the extra mile to study and train in implant placement. In this rapidly-advancing field, he has also committed to continuing with this education to stay current with the latest technology.
