Dr. David R. Edelson Receives Diplomate Status with the ICOI

Dr. David R. Edelson is proud to announce his recent accomplishment of becoming a Diplomate with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). This prestigious distinction is not easy to come by, and in obtaining it, he joins the ranks of the most talented dentists in the nation. Plainville, CT residents can now feel confident when they seek out a dentist for dental implants. The ICOI has rigorous requirements for their Diplomates, necessitating years of preparation. They do this to ensure that those they certify are competent, talented dentists. The select group of Diplomates is made up of some of the most trusted men and women in the dental community.

Before allowing dentists to even apply for Diplomate certification, the ICOI requires that they have an established relationship with the organization through fellowship or mastership. Both of these programs require extensive continued education and consistent success in performing implants. The board reviews case documentations and outcomes from each of the members to monitor the level of quality provided to patients. Only after dentists have proven themselves through membership, continued training, and case reviews, they are invited to apply for Diplomate status.

During the application process, Dr. Edelson presented documentation for hundreds of successful implants he performed as a dentist in Plainville, CT. The review board examined his diagnoses and the work he performed, and found both his judgment and his skill to be worthy of distinction. In addition to this requirement, the ICOI required him to attend 150 hours of continued education regarding implants. Dr. Edelson proved his clinical knowledge through both a written examination and an interview with the board. While the process was time consuming, Dr. Edelson is grateful for it and is excited about joining the ranks of the most respected implant dentists in the nation.
