The 4th Annual International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) symposium, held at Columbia University in New York Dec. 13-14, 2013, featured international speakers from Hungary, Italy, Israel, England, Germany, Portugal, Spain, and the United States. About 250 attendees from the US and around the world attended the event, which featured multimedia presentations of the newest implantology and surgical techniques to restore the form and function of the oral cavity with faster, more effective and simplified methods.
Presentations included Restoration of Failing Teeth, Ridge Augmentation, Full Arch Implant Rehabilitation, Esthetic Surgery in the Anterior Zone, Immediate Loading, CAD/CAM and Digital Dentistry, Sinus Augmentation among other artfully presented and scientifically researched studies.
Each presenter had the opportunity to answer questions about his research and techniques from the attendees who asked very detailed questions, and received thoughtful and informative replies in return.
Interest was very high with attendees staying until the last minute in spite of the heavy snowfall which blanketed the upper west side of Manhattan during the Saturday presentations.
The sessions were introduced by Dr. Kenneth W.M. Judy, Co-Chairman of the ICOI, and moderated by Dr. Dennis P. Tarnow, Scientific Chairman ICOI and Professor and Director of Implant Education, College of Dental Medicine, Columbia University.
The ICOI presents the latest in research at twice annual symposia, and publishes one of the worlds most respected peer reviewed journals of Implantology.
