About the American Board of Craniofacial Pain
The ABCP's sole purpose is to identify, guide, and examine candidates for Diplomate status and to help them complete their credentialing process so that they may a) fulfill the needs of the public and the profession for such certified individuals, and b) promote the high standard of excellence required to treat patients experiencing craniofacial pain, TMD, and sleep-disordered breathing problems.

Learn details about the exam such as the composition of questions, sample questions, examination process, scoring, results and appeal process.
All Diplomates are required to pay annual dues to maintain their status as Diplomate of the American Board of Craniofacial Pain.
The Convocation & Awards Ceremony is held each summer in conjunction with the AACP International Clinical Symposium.
