After completing the residency program, prosthodontists have the option of applying for Board Certification. The process, which is administered by the American Board of Prosthodontics, requires the candidates to demonstrate the highest integration of clinical and didactic knowledge and successfully complete a comprehensive written examination and a rigorous series of oral examinations. The process of becoming board certified can take up to seven years. Once certified, the prosthodontist is recognized as a Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics. To maintain their certification, Diplomates must demonstrate their commitment to their continuing professional education by attending or presenting scientific lectures or publishing articles or textbook chapters and is subjected to recertification every eight years to ensure that she is current in practices that affect the prosthodontic specialty.
The mission of the American Board of Prosthodontics is to certify individuals who have demonstrated special knowledge and skills in prosthodontics. The board also seeks to certify those who are committed to life-long learning and a lifetime of ethical practices, who value the doctor/patient relationship, who respect those with philosophical, cultural or physical differences and who are committed to the advancement of prosthodontics.
