PRESIDENT ELECT of THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF IMPLANT DENTISTRY – CONGRATULATIONS TO DR. DAVID G. HOCHBERG!
For decades the only way to replace a missing tooth was to restore the area with a bridge or a partial denture. While there exists evidence that the ancient Mayans used shells to replace missing teeth, modern science has been continuing to evolve dental implants as an alternative to missing teeth for over 70 years. Since 1951, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), the oldest professional academy educating dentists on the surgical placement and restoration of dental implants, has been dedicated to improving the oral health and quality of life for the public.
This advanced technology and state-of-the-art dentistry has been offered by Dr. David G. Hochberg since 1984 when he joined AAID. Dr. David G. Hochberg has continued his education, and after undergoing examination is a Fellow in the AAID. Soon thereafter, Dr. Hochberg became a Diplomate of the American Board of Implant Dentistry – the most advanced credential offered.
All the while Dr. Hochberg has maintained an active presence within the AAID, not only by participating in the testing of applicants seeking membership and credentialing by the academy, but also by serving as the editor of the AAID News for 12 years. In 2013 Dr. David G. Hochberg received the honor of being selected to serve on the board of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Initially serving the AAID as secretary, treasurer and then vice president, this year Dr. Hochberg is now the President-Elect for the organization. With one year until his presidency, Dr. David G. Hochberg is actively working to achieve the AAID’s goal of offering education and training programs to dentists who want to offer dentalimplant care to their patients.
