You can for plastic surgeons:

Here is a website to look up Korean plastic surgeons in an online database.

But not easy for oral and maxillofacial dental surgeons

The doctors you listed are oral and maxillofacial dental surgeons and there is no English database to check board membership status.

You said not to post website info, but here it is to cross compare. I doubt that this information is false because clinic competition is so fierce in Korea, they often audit and self police each other's information,  so if there was a false education credential it would be called out.

Here is one easy trick (not fool proof) for plastic surgery clinics.

In Korea, any medical doctor can perform surgery, but by law they cannot call their clinic a "Plastic Surgery Clinic" in Korean without being a board certified plastic surgeon. There are 3 plastic surgeon boards in Korea, and they require rigorous requirements and residency for membership.

Once they have membership then they are allowed to write this string of text next to their clinic's Korean name:

___________ 성형외과의원 (Plastic Surgery Clinic)

___________ 치과 (Dental Clinics will this after their name). 

Example: XYZ 성형외과의원

It's more for telling the difference between a plastic surgery clinic that has a board certified plastic surgeon from a clinic that has a general medical doctor who is doing plastic surgery.

A non-board certified clinic will use something like this:

____________ 클리닉 ("Clinic" in phonetic English)

____________ 성형클리닉 (Plastic Clinic)

____________ 의원 (Clinic)

Oh ok so a clinic with « plastic surgery «  in the name or « dental clinic » is safer ?
