29 dentists are now EAO-certified!
The EAO’s Certificate in Implant-based Therapy has been developed to raise standards of oral implant-based therapy across Europe. Obtaining the certificate is a prestigious achievement that demonstrates the holder is competent to perform basic and advanced implant treatments. Certification is open to any dentist or maxillofacial surgeon worldwide – not just members of the EAO.

Completing the certification programme is an achievable goal for anyone who is suitably qualified. The EAO’s Certificate in Implant-based Therapy is the only Europe-wide standardised assessment of skills and expertise within the field of implant-based therapy. It supports the EAO’s core aim of improving standards of education, clinical practice and patient care in implant-based therapy. Certification provides a way of recognising the skills and expertise of dentists practising in this field.
EAO Certification from the EAO demonstrates to your patients and colleagues that you are committed to providing high-quality implant treatments. Successful applicants will be presented with their certificate by the EAO’s President during an award ceremony at the annual scientific meeting in front of an audience of their peers.
