THE IAOMT ACCREDITATION PROCESS:
Become a leader in world dentistry
What is IAOMT accreditation?
Accreditation by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology certifies to the professional community and the general public that you have been trained and tested in the comprehensive application of biocompatible dentistry, including current methods for safe removal of dental amalgam.
IAOMT accreditation establishes you at the forefront of modern dentistry and demonstrates your commitment to furthering your knowledge of dentistry’s undeniable role in systemic health.
Why is IAOMT accreditation important?
Now more than ever, taking action to promote your understanding of biocompatible dentistry is essential. In 2013, over 100 countries signed a United Nations mercury treaty, part of which includes a global phase-down of dental amalgam. Meanwhile, more and more news articles and even television shows such as Dr. Oz have featured segments about the risks of mercury fillings.
What this means is that there is a growing demand for “qualified” or “specially trained” biocompatible dentists because patients and other medical professionals are purposefully seeking out dentists who have expertise in this pertinent issue.
By furthering your education with IAOMT’s accreditation process, you will have the necessary foundation to become a leader in modern dentistry, as you help your patients with the most up-to-date and scientifically-based practices.
How do I become accredited?
1) Make sure that you have an active membership with IAOMT.
2) Enroll in IAOMT’s Accreditation.
