All dental patients should understand that in Canada there are currently no recognized Dental Implant Specialists. In the US  however the American Board of Implantology/Implant Dentistry(ABOI/ID) who have awarded a dentist a Diplomate certification are now able to advertise themselves as Dental Implant Specialists.The Alberta Dental Association & College, and the Canadian Dental Association do not acknowledge Implant Dentistry as a specialty in Dentistry. In Alberta no general Dentist or Specialist can claim  that they are specialists in treating Dental Implants as this would be considered a violation of the ADA&C Code of Ethics. 
If you are concerned about the level of training your dentist has in Implant  Dentistry they can provide you with their curriculum vitae for your review.
