The 35th Annual Midwest Implant Institute Fellows® Symposium. October 21-22, 2022
"Pristine Precision, Exceptional Efficiency"
We are pleased to formally announce the 35th Annual Midwest Implant Institute Fellows Symposium, on October 21-22, 2022, at the Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph in Columbus, Ohio, USA. The theme of this year's meeting is “Pristine Precision, Exceptional Efficiency,” which will provide a platform for discussion of technology, improvements, and revolutionary capabilities to achieve a higher level of accuracy in dental implant surgeries.
America’s aptly named “Discovery City”, Yomi By Neocis, Dental Crafters Network, and X-Nav Technologies will converge onto the Short North District of Columbus, Ohio to compare the accuracy of implant placement by using the conventional freehand method, the surgical guide, the dental navigation system, and surgical robotics.
MEET YOUR SPEAKERS

He has subsequently received extensive specialized training in Implant fixture placement and advanced bone grafting procedures from the Midwest Implant Institute's one-year externship program on implant placement.
Dr. Griffin received training at the Medical University of South Carolina in advanced soft-tissue and bone grafting and completed a residency in conscious sedation at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He also received an oral and IV sedation certification from the Tennessee State Board of Dentistry.
Dr. Jay Neugarten is a graduate of Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery, where he was named class valedictorian and earned membership in the national dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon. He completed his residency at North Shore University-Long Island Jewish Medical Center and earned his MD from the Stony Brook School of Medicine.
Dr. Neugarten is the OMS member of the craniofacial team at New York Hospital Cornell-Weil Medical Center. He is a nationally known specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery, whose areas of expertise include working with patients requiring both complex implant and bone-grafting
Course Description:The Pinnacle of Guided Surgery Robotically guided surgery transformed the medical field and has now arrived in implant dentistry Join us for an exploration of the latest robotic technology to accurately plan and execute both simple and complex implant cases. This program will review the critical steps for clinically- and economically successful implementation of a surgical robotics program into your current dental implant practice!
Understand the clinical workflow for robotic implant placement in a variety of indications.
Explore the patient and staff experience of a dental robotic workflow vs. a more traditional approach.
Understand the impact of dental robotics on practice management and growth.
Considerations for robotic surgery in dentistry and how to enable same-day surgery with dental robotics
Evaluate the accuracy and precision of robotics compared to other treatment modalities

Jason Kennedy, DMD received his dental degree from the University of Louisville Dental School in Louisville, Kentucky and did his residency at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, in Knoxville, Tennessee. He is a Diplomate of the Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and in private practice with Southeast Oral Surgery in Maryville, Tennessee. His professional affiliations include charter member of the American Society of Implant Reconstructive Dentistry, Tennessee Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
Course Description: Ease of CT Guided SurgeryWith the advancement of implant placement technologies, it’s easy to get bogged down with processes, procedures, instrumentation, and the costs associated with implementation.In the 3 ½ hour lecture, Dr. Kennedy will streamline the process for you, covering the keys to success with CT guided surgery. He will show you how CT guided surgery can positively impact the implant placement process with minimal investment.Dr. Kennedy will cover simple and complicated treatment plans, workflow, indications for use and the important role implant selection plays in CT guided surgery.
Understand CT Guided Surgery Workflow
Discuss indications for use (directional vs. fully guided)
Understand the importance of following a decision tree to create the best surgical & prosthetic outcome
Understand the importance of implant selection with CT guided surgery
Discuss the prosthetic advantages of a precision-guided system (custom tissue formers, prefabricated custom temporaries)
Robert W. Emery BDS, DDS is a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon in private practice in Washington, D.C. Dr. Emery began his dental training at the University of Illinois in Chicago. He subsequently completed a General Practice Residency in New York at LIJ and finally completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training at the University of Maryland and Shock Trauma. Dr. Emery has a special interest in image guided surgery and implant dentistry speaking both nationally and internationally. He has published numerous articles and book chapters. Dr. Emery received the Nobelpharma Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Research Award and Grant, from the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Research Foundation. He is also actively involved in numerous research and development projects with emphasis on dynamic guided surgery and 3-D vision systems. He is a founding partner of X-Nav Technologies LLC. Presently he is the Director of the Capital Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Senior Attending Surgeon at the Washington Hospital Center, and Chief Medical Officer of X-Nav Technologies.
Course Description:Dynamic Navigation: Improving the Collaborative Workflow. Guided Prosthetics and Surgery with Freehand FlexibilityDynamic navigation for the placement of dental implants has been shown to be accurate, precise and efficient. The significant increase in the adaptation of this technology has led to refinements in the techniques for the placement of dental implants in both dentate and edentulous procedures. The ability to change the surgical plan at any time gives the team more flexibility. Collaboration and changes can be made in the planning and the surgical phase in response to the clinical situation. Recent expansion of the FDA approved indications and off label uses have increased the flexibility of navigated surgery allowing endodontic, extractions, osteotomies and many more procedures to be accomplished using the X-Guide.
Review the literature related to dynamic navigation and its uses in dental surgery.
Review the option for anatomic and fiducially guided registration.
Review the latest techniques for the placement of dental implants using dynamic navigation.
Review the work flow that improves the ability to collaborate and respond to clinic challenges as they occur.
Review new FDA approved and off label uses.
