Charlotte oral surgeon Dr. Amir Marashi was honored recently by an appointment to the body charged with certifying the nation’s oral surgeons.
Dr. Marashi, MD, DDS, has been appointed to the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery’s Examination Committee for 2015-16. He learned of his appointment in an April 2 letter from ABOMS’ president, Peter Larsen, and will soon join a very select group of oral surgeons responsible for testing and certification by the larger board. The unsalaried Examination Committee position means Dr. Marashi will help oversee certification in the areas of pathology, reconstructive surgery, cleft lip and palate repair and microsurgical repair, all specialties of his.
Dr. Marashi is the founder and medical director of Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery and runs his practice out of offices in Pineville and Steele Creek. He completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at Louisiana State University and the University of Rochester, attended medical school at Louisiana State University where he received his Doctor of Medicine degree cum laude, and is fully trained in the full scope of contemporary oral and maxillofacial surgery.
According to the ABOMS website, the unsalaried Examination Committee “is appointed by the Board of Directors to prepare and conduct the annual certification examination.” Approval by the committee is necessary for oral surgeons to gain proper certification.
