American Board of Dental Specialties Certifies ABOM

Dear Members of the Academy,

I am delighted to report some tremendous news. On July 21, 2015, the American Board of Dental Specialties (ABDS) certified the American Board of Oral Medicine (ABOM) as a specialty board. It marks an important step towards sealing our recognition as a specialty. This was the result of an enormous effort by many and I would like to recognize Drs. Craig Miller and Ronald Brown (President of the ABOM) who spearheaded our application. Please join me in congratulating them and let's forge ahead with the remaining activities regarding this goal.

Dr. Ross Kerr

President, American Academy of Oral Medicine
