CORPUS CHRISTI – Duane Martin, DDS, recently completed his certification examinations and is now a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). The mission of the ABPD is to verify to the public and to the health professions that a pediatric dentist has successfully completed both an advanced educational program accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation and a voluntary examination process designed to validate the knowledge, application and performance requisite to the delivery of competent care in pediatric dentistry.
Dr. Martin has practiced in Corpus Christi since 1982 and in Alice since 1986.
“This is an accomplishment every pediatric dentist strives toward,” he said. “It adds additional pride to the specialty of pediatric dentistry.”
The ABPD is the only certifying board recognized by the American Dental Association for the specialty of pediatric dentistry.
