About the American Board of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine
Independent testing is the most acknowledged and accepted format for validating knowledge, skills and proficiency. And it becomes especially important whenever a dentist chooses to limit his or her practice to a specific and complex, yet highly rewarding, area of dentistry such as Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine.

Numerous studies have shown that board-certified doctors provide higher quality care and achieve better treatment outcomes for their patients than doctors who are not board certified. The ABCDSM Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine credentialing program is gaining widespread recognition as "the gold standard" for dentists who are focusing all or a portion of their practices in this area of dentistry.

Participation in the ABCDSM credentialing program assures patients that the dentists who are managing their care have achieved a level of excellence.
