San Diego Implant Study Club

The San Diego Mini Residency Implant Study Club was formed in 1994. The Study Club began with a goal to assist dental clinicians in obtaining the skills necessary to diagnose, treatment plan, and familiarize themselves with the various implant systems.

This has successfully provided members to progress from beginner to advanced clinicians in implant dentistry.

The Study Club works closely with the implant companies and the area Dental Laboratories to provide up to date trends in implant dentistry for its members.

Drs. Eckstein, Oleksy, Havas, and Messina have incorporated advanced dental techniques into their specialty practice, which have been designed to achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Bone grafting, sinus lift, distraction osteogenesis, platelet rich plasma, dental implants, cancer screening, birth defect reconstruction, and extractions are amongst a few of the procedures that they perform in their office surgical suites.
