Dr. Swallow is one of the most expert and experienced dentists in America. He is highly qualified to provide all of the specialized services of the Center for Restorative Dentistry, both in terms of ongoing education that has kept him at the forefront of the dental profession and in terms of his extensive experience with patients and as a teacher.
He graduated with a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Richmond and received his DDS from the Medical College of Virginia, after which he joined the United States Navy Dental Corps and was based at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Like many others, he fell in love with the Seacoast area and chose to establish his private practice here in 1974.
Dr. Swallow has been an active member of the dental profession and its professional societies, frequently serving as president or in other leadership capacities. He lectures, writes, and demonstrates implantology techniques throughout the United States and in India.
He is fully accredited as a Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and as a Diplomate of the American Board of Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID). The latter is the credentialing organization that oversees a clinician’s ability to perform all phases of implant dentistry properly. It was established and incorporated in Illinois in 1969. Currently, there are 270 dentists, mostly in the United States, who have been certified as Diplomates of the ABOI/ID. These dentists have voluntarily subjected themselves to intense testing, written and oral, in all phases of implant dentistry.
