Dr. Costa Nicolopoulos, a leading oral & maxillofacial surgeon and an international speaker on dental implants, was recently invited to speak about the revolutionary techniques used at SameDay Dental Implants, a Dubai-based dental care clinic, to treat patients with dental implants in one day by the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI), a registered dental implant organization based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Dr. Costa was the Podium Speaker on the topic - ‘Minimizing Grafts, Maximizing Treatment’ for the Roaming Scotland Study Club of the ADI, held on September 27, 2013 at the University of Stirling, Scotland. During the lecture, he discussed atraumatic surgical techniques used to treat implant patients with suboptimal bone volume, avoiding bone grafting procedures.
Dr. Costa said, “With the
use of 3-D digital scans and the latest dental technology at our clinic - SameDay Dental Implants, the patients can have one or all the teeth extracted and replaced immediately with dental implants and fixed teeth all on the same day without bone grafts. It is a simple, fast and efficient procedure that is not only painless but also cost-effective.”
After lecturing to the prestige group of dental implantologists at Stirling University , the chairman of the meeting , Dr David Offord commented: “A great big thanks from all the guys there last night for a wonderful evening! It will go down as one of the most memorable lectures ever given at our study club, and everyone who heard it will have had their eyes opened and preconceptions challenged.”
Speaking about the efforts of the ADI, Dr. Costa added, “The Study Clubs and Masterclasses by ADI offer an ideal platform for dental professionals to get an insight into the latest techniques in implant dentistry and it was indeed an honour to be invited as a speaker there.”
Dr. Costa is the co-founder of SameDay Dental Implants in DHCC which has recently being awarded the prestigious status of “Branemark Osseointegration Centre-Dubai" by Professor P.I.
