Hi Yongkun; Your work is exceptional. The staging of the implant/restorative treatment is exactly how it should be done. Are you both surgeon and restorative clinician or do you have a team? You provide the map that we should all be following. Regards, Gerald

Dr Benjamin, Thanks for your generous comments. I am U.Penn trained perio-prosthodontist. I do my surgeries and prosthetics. It is fun to start a case, from the diagnosis, and get it completed with prosthetics, all on your own hands. Thanks again.

Hi Yongkun;
If I had to do it all over again, I would be perio-pros.
I was accepted into the Pros program at SUNY/Buffalo but turned them down...My first professional mistake. I then took 7,000 hours of CE in Pros and implant restoration...Dumb, I know. lol
Regards,

Dr. Benjanim,
One of mentors, Dr. Arnie Weisgold, told me once that there is one think he can't teach me and that is his experience. We all know that, your experience is greater than anyone else's here. And We have the greatest respect to you for the knowledge and experience you share with us. Thanks
