American College of Prosthodontists awards Private Practice Award to Dr. Jack Piermatti, managing director of Dental Arts of South Jersey

Dr. Jack Piermatti, who has performed more than 17,000 dental implants in his 35-year career, has won the Private Practice Award from the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP). The recognition is given to the practitioner in each of five US regions whose contributions to the specialty or to the college are “outstanding and substantial.”

Dr. Piermatti, managing director of Dental Arts of South Jersey and the New Jersey Center for Implant Dentistry, received the Private Practice Award for the Northeast Region. He and four of his peers were honored earlier this month during the 44th Annual Session of the ACP in New Orleans.

According to the organization, it is a lifetime award and can be earned just once.

“To be recognized by your peers is a great honor,” says Dr. Piermatti. “Our practice’s goal is always to be on the cutting edge of prosthodontics, in service to both the specialty itself and the community.”

Dr. Piermatti is an associate professor of prosthodontics at Rutgers University School of Dental Medicine, where he also is the director of the Dental Implant Maxicourse. He is vice-president and board examiner for the American Board of Oral Implantology (ABOI), and is one of fewer than 20 practitioners worldwide to be double board-certified as a diplomate of both the ABOI and the American Board of Prosthodontics. He is a Fellow of the International College of Dentists and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
