Dr. Levine recently was interviewed for a featured article for Academy News, the quarterly publication of the Academy of Osseointegration* (Volume 29, Number 4, 2018). The article, Six Keys to Team Stability, describes the practice philosophy of the Pennsylvania Center for Dental Implants and Periodontics. As Dr. Levine explains, team members include the implant surgeon, the restorative dentist, our dental hygienists and dental assistants, the dental implant representatives, and dental laboratory technicians.
Quality of patient care is paramount. Dr. Levine further compares team participation to a “symphony in action” with the common goal of benefiting patients.
Dr. Levine is one of 100 Fellows worldwide in the Academy of Osseointegration. The organization’s mission is to improve oral health by advancing the science, ethics, and practice of dentistry and related technologies, and to support the professional needs of its members worldwide.
