All of us here at Valley Brook Dental would like to say a big CONGRATULATIONS to Dr. Joseph Gurecka!! He has successfully passed both the written and oral portions of his AAID fellowship exam and is being inducted as an AAID Associate Fellow
Why should that be important to our patients or anyone considering getting a dental implant?
There is a significant difference between "dentists who do implants" and "implant dentists." Dental implants are not one size fits all – they are complex, sophisticated devices requiring specialized training and expertise to fit and place properly. When you choose an AAID-credentialed dental implant dentist, you can be confident you're working with an expert who has the extensive education, training and experience required to make sure your dental implant surgery is a success.
Established in 1951, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) is the first professional organization in the world dedicated to the advancement of implant dentistry. As part of its commitment to top quality patient care, research, education and excellence, the AAID created a program to credential professionals in implant dentistry.
To earn these AAID credentials, dentists must meet rigorous qualifications that demonstrate they have the deep knowledge and critical skills essential to successfully placing implants and replacement teeth.
AAID-credentialed dentists invest significant time and energy into dental implant-focused training, above and beyond their basic dental and/or specialist education. Because they have a thorough knowledge of all aspects of dental implants and treatment options, they understand the big picture — and they're dedicated to putting your smile, your needs and your health first.
AAID-credentialed dental implant experts are passionate about helping you live your life the way you want to. They're happy to talk with you about treatment options, share their success stories and answer your questions.
We at Valley Brook Dental are so proud of Dr. Gurecka for furthering his education and pursuing his passion for creating healthy smiles.
