ICOI Winter Symposium in Miami

Welcome to Miami

Welcome to sunny Miami, Florida, the home of the ICOI Winter Symposium! There is no doubt that the ICOI has helped to educate more clinicians on dental implants and related procedures around the globe than any other implant organization worldwide. The goal of our ICOI Winter Implant Symposium is to focus on bringing a great line-up of world-class speakers to the podium, and specifically many speakers who have yet to share their insight, knowledge, and experience to our membership at an ICOI meeting held in the US. This will be a truly international podium, showcasing new protocols for immediate loading, exciting research, bone grafting applications, zygomatic implants, advances in restorative materials, advances in the ever-evolving world of digital dentistry, 3-D imaging, guided surgery, and visions for the future in our chosen field of dental implantology. In addition to our stellar lineup of speakers, there will be an exciting array of didactic and hands-on pre-conference courses designed to provide attendees with an opportunity to meet and interact with speakers in a smaller educational environment.


Please join us at the wonderful Trump National Doral. With the fantastic on-site facilities, (including world-class golf) we invite you come and enjoy the meeting and the venue. We also encourage you to bring your family, and tell your colleagues that this will be one of the best meetings of the year!

Learning Objectives:

Participants will gain an understanding of:

• Advances in restorative protocols and materials
• Comparison of bone grafting versus zygomatic implants
• Concepts and protocols for immediate loading of dental implants
• Use of autologous blood products to enhance healing of soft tissue and bone grafting
• Use of diagnostic software to enhance esthetic and functional results
• Advances in the use of piezosurgery for a variety of case presentations
• Diagnostic pathways from CBCT to CAD CAM, and 3-D printing capabilities
• The current evolution of zirconia implants for single and multiple tooth replacement
• Esthetic and functional challenges presented by our dental laboratory technician teammatesicoimiami2016web

2015 Summer Implant Symposium: Knowledge Above Opinion

SF banner

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to the 2015 Summer Implant Symposium: Knowledge Above Opinion.

There is nothing better than doing the things you love with the people you respect and admire.  It is my good fortune once again to have the opportunity being the scientific chairman for an ICOI symposium.


Learning is an aggressive act – you have to “show up” and attend meetings, practice what you have learned, and then go on to acquire more education.  The ICOI is pledged to be with you every step along the way.


It is a privilege to invite each of our renowned faculty from countries around the world to San Francisco.  Because education is such a crucial part for our growth as clinicians this faculty has accepted the challenge to share their knowledge and experience.


The course material is planned to enrich your education and enhance your practice.  The curriculum includes discourses pertaining to; Occlusion, Management of Bruxism, Full Arch Rehabilitation, Innovative Surgical Procedures, Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning, Laboratory Procedures, Immediate Placement of Implants, Soft Tissue Management, Management of Risks and Complications, and much more.


This symposium is designed for clinicians who strive to develop a strong state of the art implant practice.
It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2015 Summer Implant Symposium.  I promise that you will have an enriching educational experience.



Best regards,
Dennis Smiler, DDS, MScD
Scientific Program Chairman


Happy New Year!



Plan your year now with our upcoming meetings!

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.
