David G. Hochberg, DDS | President of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID)
On October 14, 2017, the gavel was passed on to Dr. Hochberg as he became the newly elected President of the AAID. Implantology, the placement and restoration of dental implants, is a specialized area of dentistry that has enhanced the quality of life for millions. With continual advancements in technology and techniques over the past half-century, it has become the standard-of-care for those missing one or more teeth. Patients are smiling with confidence and chewing in comfort.
Dr. Hochberg became interested in implant dentistry in the early 80’s. His passion to provide this service led him to undertake extensive continuing education, and via testing, become a Fellow in the Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) and a Diplomate in the American Board of Oral Implantology. He has been providing both the surgical and restorative phases of this service for his patients, as well as patients of other dentists, for over 30 years.
In concert with Dr. Hochberg’s desire to provide both surgical and restorative phases of Implant Dentistry is his commitment to furthering the education of other dentists. He became active in the AAID and, for 12 years, served as Editor of the AAID newsletter. Four years ago he was elected as a line officer on their Executive Committee and this year he became the President. Not only will he have the opportunity to help advance the organization as it continues to grow and educate fellow dentists, but he will also work to help raise public awareness as to the importance of selecting an AAID credentialed dentist to provide for their care. Our congratulations to Dr. Hochberg and wishes for a successful year to come.
