Dr. Jockin is one of only a few hundred graduates of The American Board of Oral Implantology in the US and very few of them are women. There is a rigorous examination process to achieve this title and it takes years of preparation to sit for the exam. There is no higher distinction in implantology and the title of Diplomate confers specialty status in some states.

Her areas of focus include implant dentistry, laser dentistry, endodontics, and restorative and surgical techniques. Dr. Jockin is a proud member of the following dental organizations:

  • The American Board of Oral Implantology (Diplomate)
  • American Academy of Implant Dentistry (Associate Fellow)
