He is board certified in oral and maxillofacial surgery and spent six years as an examiner for the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Osbon Award for Best Oral and Maxillofacial Educator in the United States. He has published more than one hundred textbooks, chapters and scientific articles.
