He quickly gained recognition as the best oral surgeon, earning distinction as a "top oral surgeon" by Boston Magazine within his first year in the area. Dr. Saltman returned to D.C. to join the AIID Faculty Practice, where he has been recognized as a "top oral surgeon" in the tri-state area by Washingtonian Magazine in 2023.
