    After finishing his formal training, Dr. Henderson decided to take the steps required to earn his certification from the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He completed four rigorous oral exams and an extensive written exam, which tested his familiarity with the oral surgery specialty. By passing these exams, he demonstrated his exemplary knowledge and awareness of various surgical situations. He maintains his board-certified status by continuing his education and staying up to date with the latest techniques, technological advancements, and high standards of care.

    Dr. Henderson says...

    Dr. Henderson completed his Bachelor of Science degree in biology at the University of California, Irvine. After a friend of his from a volunteer dental clinic recommended Loma Linda University, he decided to go there for his dental degree. Though he was originally planning on being finished with school after dental school, when he realized his passion for oral surgery, he found an integrated program at the University of Maryland that allowed him to finish his oral and maxillofacial residency and earn a medical degree at the same time.
