Dr. Anthony G. Sclar Offers Dental Implant Complications Seminar in Four Cities

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2012) - Dr. Anthony G. Sclar will provide a one-day continuing dental education seminar for specialists and general dentists, covering how to avoid, identify and treat a wide range of complications related to dental implant surgery, adjunctive grafting procedures and implant prosthetics. The seminar will be held in Charlotte, NC on November 2, 2012, in Miami, FL on February 5, 2013, in Orlando, FL on May 10, 2013, and in the New York City area on August 23, 2013. Details and registration may be found on

Dr. Sclar's expertise in preventing and managing esthetic complications is the result of years focused on esthetic peri-implant site development while doing over 15,000 successful dental implants. He is the founder and director of the Sclar Center for Empowered Dental Implant Learning, in South Miami, at the same location as his Sclar Oral Surgery and Implant Dentistry practice. He will be joined on the podium by Dr. Larry B. Grillo, a general dentist practicing in Aventura, FL, who works closely with oral surgeons, orthodontists and periodontists in the multidisciplinary treatment of patients requiring implant therapy and complex, esthetic dental rehabilitations. Dr. Grillo has extensive experience in the treatment planning and restorative aspects of implant dentistry, and he is well versed on currently available prosthetic options. 

"With the increasing number of patients receiving dental implant therapy, it is natural to experience an increased number of complications," says Dr. Sclar, noted author of the multilingual textbook "Soft Tissue and Esthetic Considerations in Implant Therapy" (Quintessence, 2003). "We are seeing an increasing number of patients referred to our practice for management of implant complications. In order to minimize the number of avoidable complications, dental professionals who are providing implant care, need to obtain education and clinical experiences related to avoiding and managing dental implant related complications."

"During our annual comprehensive dental implant surgery training conference, on Miami Beach, this past February, the day we spent on complications was overwhelmingly well received," says Dake Schwarte, Director of Operations at the Sclar Center. "Dr. Sclar covered common intra-operative complications and how to assess the risks for and plan treatment to manage general and esthetic complications. Since then, there has been a demand for more 1-day sessions."
