ICOI Summer Implant Prosthetic Symposium

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.

ICOI Launches

ICOI is dedicated to fulfilling our mission of educating patients. We have designed to be a leading source of quality implant education on the world wide web. We have heard the requests of our members and incorporated a feature where patients can search for an ICOI member, view their credential level and even email them directly from our site. Because the educational information on the Members Only area of ICOI’s website is expanding so rapidly, we have also included a Members Only area on our new educational website. Your login information for the Members Only area will be the same for both websites. This additional area will allow us to double the educational content we provide for our members online. In addition to webinars, ICOI Concepts and articles, we have also incorporated a Members’ Forum to encourage discussion, camaraderie and hopefully get you real time answers to the implant practice related questions you have. We hope you join in our excitement as we launch this site…we look forward to your feedback, contributions and participation.
