December 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

World-renowned speakers to focus on treating complex bone grafting cases.

Kierland2Lubbock, TX, December 1, 2009 – Osteogenics Clinical Education, a division of Osteogenics Biomedical, has announced dates for its 2010 Global Bone Grafting Symposium. The symposium will be held March 26 and 27, 2010 at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Led by keynote speaker Dr. Michael Pikos, the symposium will feature presentations from world-renowned speakers in dental bone grafting, including Dr. Dexter Barber, Dr. Suzanne Caudry, Dr. Daniel Cullum, Dr. Andreas Siebold, Dr. Hom-Lay Wang, and Dr. Thomas Wilson Jr. Approximately 300 clinicians from around the world are expected to attend the symposium. This will mark the second consecutive year Osteogenics Clinical Education has hosted the symposium in Scottsdale.

“Based on last year’s overwhelmingly positive attendee feedback, this educational format of having keynote speakers, case presentations, and a hands-on workshop is very effective,” said company president Shane Shuttlesworth. “Once again, we’re honored to have such a talented and experienced group of lecturers, and we know that attendees will be very pleased with this year’s program.”

The 2010 symposium will focus on treatment planning routine and complex bone grafting cases in an environment conducive to group learning. Attending clinicians will be able to actively participate in the symposium through interactive treatment planning sessions and a hands-on ridge augmentation workshop.

“Comprehensive diagnosis and treatment planning is the cornerstone of all that we do in dentistry”, said Dr. Pikos. “While there can be more than one treatment plan for a given case, there is but one diagnosis, and cone beam CT has had a dramatic impact on this critical process, both in my private practice and with the Pikos Implant Institute.”

The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa was chosen due to the mild weather the Scottsdale area receives in the springtime and for the resort’s amenities. The resort offers 27 holes of championship golf, a 9,000 square foot water park, and a world-class spa. The resort is also within walking distance to Kierland Commons, a 38 acre upscale shopping and dining complex.

For more information, including registration and additional hotel information, visit, or call 1.888.796.1923. Tuition is $695 for clinicians and $250 for assistants and office personnel. Attending clinicians are eligible for up to 14 CE credits. Registration ends February 26, 2010.
