board-certified implant specialist.
Dental specialists receive up to four years more schooling than a standard dentist. Many dentists that place dental implants receive their training at a weekend continuing education course that can be completed in as little as 16 hours. Dr. Holtan has spent over 20,000 hours performing dental procedures such as dental implants.
This provides him with a greater knowledge of how to best help patients fix their oral problems. When taking into consideration how much time Dr. Holtan has devoted to becoming one of the nation’s leading implant specialists, the choice of who to trust with your teeth is clear.
AAID-CREDENTIALED DENTAL IMPLANT DENTIST
When you choose an AAID-credentialed dental implant dentist, you can rest assured you’re choosing an expert with the education, training, experience, and proficiency to evaluate your needs, design a personalized treatment plan, and successfully complete it. In addition to earning the AAID Fellow and AAID Associate Fellow credentials, Dr. Holtan has achieved certification and validation of his proficiency by becoming a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID), which was chartered by the AAID in 1969.
Dr. Holtan is always keeping up with the latest techniques and technology by attending conferences around the world. He recently attended a 40 hour Transnasal Zygoma Clinical Residency in Florianopolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil as well as the 3 day Implant Rehabilitation Masters Summit in Mykonos, Greece. There is a significant difference between “dentists who do implants” and “dental implant experts.” Dental implants are not one size fits all – they are complex, sophisticated devices requiring specialized training and expertise to fit and place properly.
