ICOI Winter Implant Symposium “Lessons Taught – Lessons Learned”


The 2015 ICOI Winter Symposium’s goal is to provide the attendees with a balanced clinical and scientific view of the evolution of implant dentistry.  Starting with implant site development through hard and soft tissue regeneration all the way to temporization, all aspects of implant dentistry will be examined and brought up to date with current concepts and philosophies.


Cutting edge technologies will be presented to help the clinician see the advantages of today’s technological advances in the implant therapy and patient education.  The symposium will also address current concepts in screw-retained versus cement restorations.

ICOI’s 2014 meeting in Chicago attracted significant audiences.  Over 1,200  doctors, auxiliary and corporate representatives attending this symposium were exposed to lectures dealing with the compelling theme “Implant Failures”.

The symposium got off to a perfect start with several well attended pre-symposium  workshops given by our sponsors.  We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our sponsors.

ICOI World Congress XXXI



It is our honor and privilege to welcome you to ICOI’s 31 World Congress here in Tokyo, Japan, sponsored by ICOI’s Asia Pacific Section. Participants should expect three days of the highest level of international dental implant education and research. This congress will focus on “The Future of Implant Dentistry”. The speakers represent a blend of experienced clinicians and seasoned academicians who will share their combined wealth of knowledge.


We all must recognize and thank our Japanese committee members for their hard work and organizational abilities.


Although the focus of this World Congress will largely be displays and representations of clinical cases and surgical and prosthetic techniques, ample opportunity will be given to speakers to present current research, both published and “in press”, and provide an insight into future perspectives in Implant Dentistry.

ICOI Winter Implant Symposium


Join us —- January 16-18, 2014 New Orleans, LA

New Orleans has a remarkable place in the history of our country. Cajun pronounces this storied city, “Nawiwz”. Mardi Gras or “Fat Tuesday” is our premier carnival, and a legal state holiday. An annual parade on St. Charles Avenue and Canal Street is organized by “Krewes” with their distinctive floats, from which beads are thrown to the crowds, etc. ICOI participants only need to be in this celebratory mood. Our distinguished past president, Dr. Roland Meffert, was a proud Krew member.

This is a city that embodies fine cuisine, international appeal (the Mardi Gras colors of purple, gold and green represent justice, power and faith and were chosen in 1872 by Grand Duke Alexis Romanoff of Russia when he visited New Orleans) and sense of relaxation. While I am sure many of you and your family members will become enchanted by New Orleans, yet we should all remember that our foremost goal is to learn from our clinicians to improve patient care.
