Full Spectrum Zygomatic Implant Therapy Demystified

 

"I have practiced OMS for 43 years.  I did my first zygoma implant in 2008, and maybe 30 since then.  I never felt comfortable with the procedure but this training was different.  I feel much more confident in performing this procedure safely and deliver a great result.  Drill Responsibly™!"

– David Mulherin, OMS – Conroe, TX

 

"This is by far one of the best if not “the best” CE course I have attended during my oral surgery career.  From the presentations, facilities, hospitality, Dr. Pikos and his team made this a great learning experience.  Dr. Pikos is not only a great surgeon and teacher but also a fantastic host."

– Don Kalant, OMS – Naperville, IL
