Formal Training and Dental Implants
When it comes to something as critical and life affecting as dental implant surgery, you want a true expert to complete your treatment. Dental implants are becoming more common, and more dentists are offering the service. You want to make sure that you have a thoroughly trained professional conducting your treatment.
The more often a dentist performs a surgery, the better that doctor will become. Dr. Field has built his entire practice around implant surgery. It’s what he loves to do!

Dr. Field actually prefers the more complicated cases! He gains utmost satisfaction in seeing the lives of his patients improve for the better. When a case is more difficult, the results are more satisfying. And the resulting happiness and health of his patients is supremely rewarding.
Diplomate in the American Board of Implantology
In 2016 Dr. Field received the honor of becoming a Diplomate in the American Board of Implantology (ABOI). This distinction is not easy to come by.
The examination for this title is demanding and intense. Doctors must complete the examination in 4 years, having completed 75 implant cases within 7 years.
The cases submitted must encompass complex implant cases, such as posterior teeth implants and sinus augmentation. Ten of those cases must be intact and successful after a year.
The Doctors are required to show that their work is successful both surgically and restoratively. They must also submit proof of their aftercare efforts. This distinction is about more than the implant surgery itself-it’s about providing patients with treatment and care from start to finish, with results that can last a lifetime.

Dr. Field is a top level expert in dental implant surgery. His place in the ABOI is a source of pride and accomplishment. But what really sets him apart from his peers is his compassionate and sympathetic approach towards his patients. Surgery is scary, dental phobia is very real, and missing teeth is an extremely sensitive and daunting obstacle to overcome.
Dr. Field has been known to meet patients at their cars in order to escort them into the office, simply to alleviate anxiety.
