A O M S E DITIO N IMPLANT TRIBUNE A The World’s Dental Implant Newspaper · U.S. Edition OCTOBER 2020 — Vol. 15, No. 5 www.dental-tribune.com AAOMS is waiting for you If you haven’t yet registered or joined cal procedures important to the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Topics include implants, orthognathic, recon- struction/nerve and cosmetic. in the fun at the 102nd AAOMS An- nual Meeting, you’re in luck. There is no better time than now, with the meeting just heating up. The 2020 Virtual AAOMS Annual Meet- ing, running from now through Oct. 10, is taking place online this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting combines the educational content of the association’s 102nd Annual Meeting, Sci- entific Sessions and Exhibition, original- ly scheduled for this month, and annual Dental Implant Conference, originally scheduled for December, into one. Organizers promise that the meeting’s live and on-demand educational sessions will provide greater flexibility for attend- ees to learn about the latest research in the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS). A community-oriented platform is set to foster interaction be- tween attendees and speakers. Being held in conjunction with the In- ternational Association of Oral and Max- illofacial Surgeons, the meeting features several international speakers and fo- cuses on the theme of the “Digital Work- force: Improving Efficiency and Safety for our Patients.” Oral and maxillofacial surgeons, faculty, residents and allied staff are all invited to attend. Similar to previous in-person AAOMS Each Surgical Pearl will include teach- ings on three specific procedures led by the operating surgeon. Upon conclusion of the presentations, attendees will be able to engage in a question-and-answer period with the speakers. Attendees walk the exhibit hall floor during a past AAOMS Annual Meeting. Photo/Dental Tribune file photo annual meetings, the educational con- tent is presented in clinical tracks that cover the scope of OMS practice: anes- thesia, cosmetic, dentoalveolar, orthog- nathic, pathology, pediatrics and cleft, reconstruction/nerve, temporomandi- bular joint and trauma. Sessions are fo- cused on timely topics that will help en- hance the OMS practice. The Dental Implant Program is review- ing enhanced dental implant content with four live sessions, three on-demand sessions and interaction opportunities. New to the AAOMS Annual Meeting lineup are OMS-guided surgical record- ings. Renowned OMSs will share videos of procedures while discussing impor- tant pearls and lessons for specific clini- Attendees can participate live or watch these sessions on-demand for 60 days. In addition to the educational sessions, a virtual exhibit hall is displaying the most advanced products and services available in the OMS specialty. Attendees are encouraged to visit the exhibit hall during Exhibitor Engagement Hours (vis- it www.aaoms.org/meetings-exhibitions/ annual-meeting/102nd-annual-meeting/ exhibition for exact times). During these hours, exhibitors will be available to chat with attendees and answer questions, provide additional information and build relationships with AAOMS members. The exhibit hall will be available 24/7 until Dec. 10. Registration is still open to AAOMS members, OMS residents, professional al- lied staff and non-members, and you can join in at any time.

Dr. Anthony Fauci and Jay Leno highlight online President’s Event Mark your calendars for Oct. 9, and log on to join AAOMS President Dr. Victor L. Nannini for a night of celebration with the annual President’s Event. First up will be a presentation by spe- cial guest Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and In- fectious Diseases. Afterward, head over to AAOMS’s virtual networking lounge for a comedy show by Jay Leno, former host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show.” As director of NIAID since 1984, Fauci has served as a key advisor to six U.S. presidents on AIDS, COVID-19 and other health issues. As a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, he has shared guidance with the public on pro- tecting against the virus. While chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, Fauci has made significant contributions to research on the origin, development and treatment of infectious diseases. He is credited with developing effective therapies for previously deadly inflammatory and immune-mediated diseases, such as polyarteritis nodosa, immune-mediated and granulomatosis with polyangiitis and lymphomatoid granulomatosis. His honors include the Presidential Medal of Freedom and National Medal of Science. He has written or edited more than 1,300 scientific publications. ” See FAUCI, page B2
Implant Tribune U.S. Edition | October 2020 E X H I BI TOR S B3 Periodontist becomes one of the first to use surgical robotics when placing implants It is estimated tachment that broadens Yomi’s applica- tion to include full arch implant cases as well as partially edentulous cases. that more than 36 million Americans are missing all their teeth. The new Yomi edentulous splint will enable doctors to use Yomi’s technology to reach more of this popula- tion. At right, the Yomi Surgical Robotics System is used to place implants.

Neocis, the company behind Yomi and a leader and pioneer in robot-assisted dental implant surgery, announced in July that it received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a new Yomi edentulous indica- tion. The clearance allows for a new splint at- By Neocis Staff Since 2000, more than 6 million ro- botic-assisted surgeries have taken place across multiple medical specialties, in- cluding cardiovascular, neurology and orthopedics. But surgical robotics have only recently been available to dentists. Dr. Christopher Bingham of Council Oaks Perio is the first periodontist in Austin, Texas, to be certified to use the Yomi® Surgical Robotics System to place dental implants. Successfully placing dental implants requires careful pre-operative planning and a high degree of accuracy and preci- sion. Surgical robotic technology helps doctors to achieve these objectives. Bingham is one of only 50 doctors in the United States who are certified to use the Yomi Robot, which is the first and only FDA-cleared robot-assisted dental surgery system. The Yomi Robot is an assistive surgical technology that offers physical guidance through haptic robot- ic technology to precisely and accurately place dental implants. Bingham is always in complete control of the surgery. Yomi provides Bingham computerized navigation to assist in both the planning (pre-operative) and the surgical (intra-operative) phases of dental implantation surgery. Yomi also enables a minimally invasive flapless ap- proach, which has been proven to lead to faster recovery and less pain for the pa- tient, according to the company. “I chose to become certified in Yomi Dental Robotics because I believe that ro- botic surgery will become the standard of care in dental implantology just as it has in many other medical specialties. I am excited that Council Oaks Perio is the first dental practice in Austin to place implants using this exciting technology,” Bingham said. Bingham is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Richard J. Lazzara Implant Fellowship, and he is a diplo- mate of the American Board of Peri- odontology. He is a member of American Academy of Periodontology, Academy of Osseointegration, American Dental As- sociation, Texas Dental Association and the Capital Area Dental Society. Bingham received his bachelor of sci- ence degree from Brigham Young Uni- versity in 1998. He completed his DDS from the University of Illinois in 2005, followed by the completion of a general practice residency at the Rush University Medical Center in 2006. He then prac- ticed as a general dentist for two years before entering Georgia Health Sciences University (formally Medical College of Georgia) in Augusta, where he earned a certificate in periodontics and a master of science in oral biology in 2011.
