Always Studying, Always Learning More!

At our March Philadelphia Tri-State International Team for Implantology (ITI) Study Club Zoom meeting, Doctors Fava and Levine announced that our study club member and ITI Fellow and Temple dental school faculty member, Ping Wang, DMD, was awarded first place for her presentation e-poster submitted to the Academy of Osseointegration’s (AO) 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting.

The meeting was originally scheduled for Florida but was changed to a virtual event due to the pandemic. More than 160 abstracts and e-posters were submitted. Dr. Wang’s winning presentation/poster was “Effect of Connective Tissue Graft (CTG) on Buccal Bone Dimension and Esthetics Following Immediate Implant Placement.”

Dr. Levine’s Clinical Cases 

Dr. Levine is one of Dr. Wang’s mentors. Along with international colleagues from Brazil Doctor Debora Dias and Mauricio Araujo, the team recently coauthored an article, the first of four publications on the immediate treatment (extraction and immediate implant placement) of the maxillary central incisor. Additionally, all 41 clinical cases in the studies used for the analysis were on patients treated by Dr. Levine with the statistical and CBCT analysis completed at the University of Maringa, Brazil.
