Chicago, IL, June 12, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Umar Haque is a general dentist practicing in Oakbrook Terrace, IL. This month, he was awarded the title of Fellow in the American Dental Implant Association (ADIA). The goal of the American Dental Implant Association is to encourage collaboration and communication among the top dental professionals placing dental implants.
Dr. Haque has been placing dental implants for over 7 years and has been requested to become a member of the prestigious American Dental Implant Association.
The ADIA Fellowship Certification is rigorous, demanding six steps be completed in order to gain the title of Fellow. One must complete 150 hours of course credits in implant dentistry, pass the written Fellowship multiple choice examination, pass the oral Fellowship examination, provide three letters of recommendation from current ADIA Fellows, submit a current curriculum vitae, and attend the Annual Conference induction ceremony. The title of Fellow with ADIA gives Dr. Haque the ability to add a few more letters after his name: FADIA (Fellow of the American Dental Implant Association).
The organization was founded by Dr. Arun K. Garg, founder of Implant Seminars, the world’s largest dental continuing education company. Dr. Garg created the American Dental Implant Association in response to overwhelming requests for more credentialing and credibility by establishing recognition models.
The American Dental Implant Association aggressively promotes collegiality, friendship, and practice growth. “This is the top forum for an exchange of a vast amount of niche information through annual symposiums of like-minded individuals to receive the latest information in the dental implant field, in a familiar, supportive community. Our main goal is to better serve our affiliate of well-trained clinicians, like Dr. Umar Haque,” said Dr. Garg.
The American Dental Implant Association’s Executive Director Fiorella Samaniego said “Each clinician may obtain the fellowship, mastership and diplomat status provided they meet the requirements for continuing education (CE) hours and pass a written examination”. Scheduling for exams is vital, so awards can be given in a timely manner at the ceremonies, the most recent one was held at the annual symposium on April 24, 2009 in Miami, FL. "Dr. Haque has exhibited excellent patient care in the cases that have been submitted for approval by the Board of the ADIA. His dental implant techniques, bone grafting, and soft tissue management have shown us that he is certainly qualified to be a Fellow in the ADIA."
Dr. Haque was honored to receive the Fellowship stating, "It is a privilege to have earned the respect of the finest dental surgeons, implantologists, dentists, and scholars in our field. It’s even more exciting to see the progress and advances that have become available to my patients that were unheard of 10 years ago. It is an amazing service for my patients, and I am looking forward to getting involved with the ADIA.”
Dr. Umar Haque maintains a private dental practice in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois called Oak Brook Smiles. He attended the University of Connecticut and graduated with a D.M.D. (Doctor of Medical Dentistry). He completed a post-graduate residency in hospital-based dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago and at the University of Chicago. He has completed over 250 hours of CE over the last year in Implant Dentistry and Cosmetic Dentistry. He also has completed a Fellowship in Implant Dentistry with the International Congress of Oral Implantology. His office tries to recreate a spa-like atmosphere and his services include implant and cosmetic dentistry, sleep apnea treatment, TMJ dysfunction treatment, laser dentistry, fluorescent oral cancer screenings, and digital radiography including a digital CT scanner for exceptional patient care.
