San Francisco, CA (October 1st, 2012)—The International College of Oral Implantologists (ICOI), the world’s largest provider of continuing dental implant education, have conferred the Mastership credential to two MicroDental Laboratories Technical Leaders. Lee Culp, CDT and CTO of MicroDental Laboratories, and Jack Marrano, CDT and Technical Director, join an elite group of technicians who have achieved the ICOI Mastership credential. Less than one percent of the technicians have qualified for the prestigious Mastership credential.

The Mastership is awarded to those Fellows of the ICOI “who have accepted their professional responsibility and challenged themselves in the field of implant prosthodontics by developing the skills, knowledge and experience and training to properly treatment plan, design, fabricate and deliver implant supported prostheses.”

To achieve ICOI Mastership status, technicians must accomplish a rigorous and objective certification process. Requirements include completion of at least 40 completed implant cases at least 12 months old, documentation of at least 100 hours of continuing implant education hours in the last 5 years, a letter of recommendation from IPS Master or ICOI Diplomat, evidence of having presented at least 2 table clinics or posters presentations and a current Curriculum Vitae. 

“Perfecting the case planning process and implant restorative results while simultaneously partnering with the clinician is part of the prestigious Mastership title,” commented Lee Culp, CDT and CTO of MicroDental Laboratories. “Through extensive documented experience and education, the ICOI Mastership achievements is proof that MicroDental is dedicated to expanding it’s expertise in implant dentistry in order to optimally serve our clinicians.”  MicroDental Laboratories is a leading provider of implant restoration solutions.
