Dr. Anthony G. Sclar Announces Dates for the 2013 ISTM Comprehensive Dental Implant Surgery Training Conference

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - May 29, 2012) - The Sclar Center for Empowered Dental Implant Learning's annual Implant Surgery Training Meeting (ISTM) was a great success. Over 150 participants came to Miami Beach on February 3-7 and represented the entire range of novice to advanced dental implant surgeons.

"We're already planning next year's conference to accommodate more learners," says Dr. Anthony G. Sclar, founder and educational director of The Sclar Center. "The dates we've chosen for 2013 are February 1-5."

Participant feedback from the 2012 conference confirmed that the educational sessions were highly effective in exposing novice surgeons to a comprehensive implant surgery knowledge base, giving them confidence on how to proceed in developing an implant practice. Experienced surgeons gained in-depth knowledge on cutting-edge implant surgery and grafting techniques and evidence-based treatment protocols to achieve successful outcomes while minimizing complications.

Dr. Sclar presented and facilitated five days of comprehensive dental surgery education, including hands-on soft and hard tissue grafting workshops. Additional presenters helped round out the program with the objective of helping attendees develop or expand a successful dental implant surgery practice. Dr. Robert Marx led a forum on regenerative technologies, Dr. Brody Hildebrand provided a workshop on digital dentistry, Dr. Larry Grillo gave a workshop on implant prosthetics, and Ms. Liz Suarez provided an implant practice management program.

"The passion and excitement for dental implant practice was almost overwhelming," says Dr. Sclar. "What a great time in history it is for specialists and general dentists to learn amazing techniques and gather the latest, advancing knowledge. It's just incredible what we can do for our patients in the way of long lasting, comfortable function and esthetics. Sincere thanks go to all of our participants, presenters, and conference sponsors. The sponsors were Straumann, Nobel Biocare, Philips Sonicare, Osteohealth, Imaging Sciences, Hu-Friedy and Salvin Dental Specialties."

"Some of this year's participants have already preregistered for next year's conference," says Dake Schwarte, The Sclar Center's director of operations. "Because we ended up having to wait list people this year, we recommend early registration for next year's conference. With advance knowledge of registration, we can organize more sessions to accommodate more people, and still provide our limited-attendance, high-touch empowering experience."
