What does Board Certified mean?
This means Dr. Stoll has gone a step beyond! This voluntary effort in continuing education is unique in that it applies earlier classroom work and conventional continuing education to the real world of patient care, culminating in presentation of treatment results for critical review by a panel of nationally-respected peers.

The greatest benefit comes from the in-depth self-evaluation that is required by years of preparation and continued maintenance of board certification, spanning a career’s quest for excellence.
Successful completion of the Clinical Examination entitles the orthodontist to become Board Certified and to display the designation of Diplomate of The American Board of Orthodontics for the time limit of the certificate. The recertification examinations entitle the orthodontist to earn a new time limited certificate to allow continued use of the Diplomate designation.
