Dental Implant

Keith R. Lawson, BSc, DDS,

Meet Dr. lawson

Dr. Lawson graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) with specialization in Zoology degree in 1986 and then as a general dentist with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 1990. Since that time he has pursed his education continually with a special focus on Dental implants, orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, sedation and oral surgery.  He also provides treatment for facial aesthetics including Botox. Dr. Lawson has been affiliated with many Dental organizations that pursue excellence and comprehensive training for Dental professionals in both dental implants and orthodontics and has provided lectures and taken thousands of hours of continuing education over the last 30 years and continues to do so.

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.
