The Taiwan Board of Periodontology was organized by the Taiwan Academy of Periodontology in 1991. Board Certification by written and oral examinations began in 1995. The mission of the Taiwan Board of Periodontology is to advance the scientific education in periodontics and to assure the quality of periodontal care through the Board Certification process.
Maintenance of the Diplomate status and recertification of periodontists are revisited through Continue Education Credits every 6 years. Currently, approximately 300 well trained periodontists are Board certified.
