As recognition for his extensive knowledge and experience in the field of implant dentistry
, Dr. Kent E. White
has been named a Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics (AAIP)
. This is the third Fellowship that Dr. White has received this year, having previously been honored by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) and the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies.
The American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics
The AAIP was founded in 1982 by Dr. Maurice J. Fagan, Jr. at the School of Dentistry, Medical College of Georgia, making it one of the first organizations in the world dedicated to the practice of implant dentistry.
The goal of the organization is to ensure that dentists practicing in the field of implant dentistry have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide patients with quality results. To accomplish this goal, the AAIP promotes a number of crucial activities.
The organization and its international affiliates draw their member dentists from many of the top practices around the world, so a vital component of the AAIP’s mission is to help member dentists exchange their knowledge via regular international conventions, one sponsored by the AAIP, with numerous others sponsored by international affiliates and component societies. Study clubs help encourage continuous information exchange between meetings.
The AAIP has published textbooks in the field of implant prosthodontics, and it continues to promote research into the field of implant dentistry through its official publication, the Journal of Oral Implantation.
The AAIP also promotes more structured exchange of ideas through the various continuing education courses it offers. These courses help educate dentists in the essential skills of implant prosthodontics, and it is through these courses that dentists gain standing as Masters or Fellows in the organization.
Dr. White completed the requisite number of courses and passed the oral exam necessary to establish his knowledge.
