” My interest in Implant Dentistry started in the late 1980′s and I placed my first implant in early 1991 on my mother. Implants can improve a person’s quality of life and I am glad to have been able to help more than a thousand patients over the years. Implants improve eating ability and can be placed very safely and almost painlessly using minimal invasive techniques. “

” From a professional point of view, my research in basic bone biology has stood me in good stead and has allowed me to obtain consistent success for my patients especially in bone of poor quality in the upper jaw. Techniques have evolved over time. I placed my first “same day teeth implants” in 1999. More than 10 years have passed and I can confidently say with experience that when the bone is sound, controlled loading can be done immediately though it still takes 3 months for the bone to finally set firmly around all implants. “
