It took careful consideration to go back to residency because that meant moving out of state for 3 years and leaving years of private practice. But it was worth it. Likewise going through the 3 step process to become Board Certified was also quite challenging and actually a bit daunting as it is not my greatest strength to face examiners that I know are at the pinnacle of our field. In the end to succeed when it takes effort and preparation makes the reward so much more meaningful. Thus being granted and welcomed as a fellow Diplomate is my greatest professional honor that has ever been bestowed upon me.
We will celebrate the pinning of 72 new Diplomates of the American Board of Endodontics on Thursday, May 7th at AAE 15. This is an extremely important achievement in the professional life of these dedicated individuals.Obtaining Board Certification is the culmination of a great deal of effort by the new Diplomate. On behalf of all the Directors and Staff of the American Board of Endodontics, we wish to extend our heartiest and most sincere congratulations to all of you.I have often heard from very accomplished endodontists that going through the Board Certification process made them a better endodontist, and improved their practice. There is tremendous gratification when one becomes a Diplomate. It is the pinnacle of professional accomplishment.Our specialty of endodontics is forever indebted and beholding to those who have obtained Board Certification.
