The following information is provided to help you understand why Mayberry Dental is the only place you should consider investing in dental implant treatment. Dental implant care can be a substantial investment, but also a wise and prudent investment when done properly. The return on investment in your health and well-being will be greater than any other investment. The consumers understanding of the process, who is going to provide that process. Unknown to most patients is the fact that the most complex and detail critical of all dental treatments, dental implant treatment, has no standard of care, or any specialist group of dentists responsible for establishing a “standard of care”. How can the public determine a doctor’s skills and make a judgement without a “standard of care”? Every other dental “specialty” has a standard of care which is established by the “Specialists” who make up that group of doctors providing that type of treatment. Oral Surgery, Orthodontics, Endodontics, Periodontics, Prosthodontics, are some of the dental specialties recognized inside of dentistry.
The recognized dental specialties have a “Board of Examiners” who test doctors applying for a certificate which demonstrates to the public that they are “Board Qualified” as specialists within their particular area of dental expertise. Oral surgeons qualified in oral surgery, Periodontists qualified in gum treatment and surgery, Prosthodontists qualified in building prosthetic teeth, etc. Each of these specialties has a role to play in dental implant treatment, but each is only trained to provide a part of implant treatment. In their post graduate training the dental implant portion is only a small part of their overall specialty training and is not comprehensive.
The American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID-Implant.org) is the oldest dental implant organization in the world, established in 1951.Today the Academy and its independent testing Board, the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI.org) is composed of Specialists and General Dentists who have demonstrated their dental implant qualifications and have become “Board Certified.” This certification is similar to the other dental specialty testing boards in the recognized dental specialties. The authenticity and qualifications of the ABOI Board have been challenged by several state dental boards over the last 5 years.
State Dental Boards are government organizations responsible for licensing and controlling dentists in each state of the Union. In California, Texas, and Florida the state dental boards filed suit against dentists certified by the ABOI, claiming these dentists were frauds by advertising they were Board Certified Implant Dentists. The state boards argued that because there is no implant dentistry specialty recognized by the American Dental Association these doctors were advertising themselves fraudulently as specialists of an unrecognized specialty. In each of these cases the Federal Courts ruled that the ABOI was in fact a “bona fide” testing organization. The courts ruled that the American Dental Association and the state dental boards could not sanction these dentists who had been tested and found qualified, by the ABOI, which they determined was a “bona fide” testing organization similar to the recognized specialty boards. As a result of these cases the state dental boards of these states were required to pay the AAID damages of $15,000,000.
Dr. Mayberry is one of a handful of certified ABOI credentialed implant dentists in the Washington metropolitan area. He has been using dental implants to help thousands of his patients since 1983. The doctor has been an examiner for the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, testing hundreds of dentists applying for AAID credentials for the last 8 years.
Today any dentist can advertise as a dental implant provider, some even claim to be implant specialists because they are specialists in a related dental specialty, but only have rudimentary knowledge and understanding of the complete process. As a result of this, dental implant treatment has become the main cause of dental malpractice today. Dr. Mayberry has provided expert witness testimony is several of these cases.
