MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - April 30, 2012) - Dr. Anthony G. Sclar, founder of the Sclar Center for Empowered Dental Implant Learning and author the multi-language textbook SOFT TISSUE AND ESTHETIC CONSIDERATIONS IN IMPLANT THERAPY (Quintessence 2003), announces his new Sclar Center blog, "Dental Implant Strategies" at www.dentalimplantstrategies.com.
"Initial articles on my blog will be in response to questions clinicians ask me about how to get started and how to develop a successful dental implant practice," says Dr. Sclar. "Then, we plan to begin a weekly series of short resource articles on clinical aspects of dental implant surgery which will be of value to both specialists, placing implants, and general dentists restoring teeth on implants. We hope to keep in touch with the doctors who attend our courses and their surgical assistants in this way and remind them of the benefits to be gained from implementing their dental implant learning. We also hope to inspire learning among the many clinicians who are just beginning to develop their implant knowledge and skills."
A diplomat of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Dr. Sclar maintains an active interdisciplinary referral-based dental implant surgery practice in South Miami, Florida, where he performs 15-20 advanced and complex implant surgery procedures each week, including hard and soft tissue implant site development, and tissue engineering, periodontal plastic surgery, and immediate function procedures for partially and atrophic edentulous patients. He also treats patients presenting with a wide range of implant complications.
Having placed over 15,000 implants, Dr. Sclar currently is recognized as one of the most experienced implant surgeons and foremost dental implant educators in the world. He is the Director of Clinical Research and Dental Implant Surgery in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Nova Southeastern University School of Dentistry, an editor for the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery's dental implant section, a reviewer for numerous implant journals, and a member of the AAOMS special committee for the development of parameters of care and clinical pathways for dental and craniomaxillofacial implant surgery.
In addition to publishing his 2003 textbook, Dr. Sclar co-edited a surgical atlas, SOFT TISSUE ESTHETIC PROCEDURES FOR TEETH AND IMPLANTS (W.B. Saunders 1999), and he has published over 70 scientific and clinical journal articles and textbook chapters pertaining to dental implant surgery. An innovator, Dr. Sclar developed classifications and treatment algorithms for predictable management of extractions site defects and alveolar ridge defects in esthetic areas. He also developed the Bio-Col ridge preservation protocol, the vascularized interpositional periosteal-connective tissue flap procedure for esthetic soft tissue augmentation, and the "u" shaped peninsula flap procedure, a minimally invasive approach for implant surgery.
