Straumann: The Business Model for a Successful Implant Practice in a Digital Era

Kanyon Keeney, DDS
Virginia Oral and Facial Surgery
Glen Allen, VA


The "team approach" to implant dentistry provides for exquisite clinical outcomes but also creates several inefficiencies that often act as a disincentive to the treating doctors. The Implant surgeon, as part of the "team", faces many challenges that make implant surgery less profitable and more time consuming than other surgical disciplines within the scope of their practice.

This lecture will discuss a business model and clinical application of new materials and technologies that gain efficiency in implant surgery. Experience of utilizing digital solutions to improve the flow of implant treatment will also be presented.
