We are proud to announce that two of our team members, Dr. Sandra Morin and Dr. Ana Keohane were trained and involved in the implementation to use the new Robot Assisted Dental Implant surgical device acquired by Boston University.
The robot-assisted surgical device, known as Yomi Robot was developed by Miami- based healthcare start-up Neocis. It is the first (and to date, only) such device cleared by the U.S Food and Drug Administration for dental implant surgery. GSDM, with the assistance of trained technicians from Neocis, completed installing and calibrating the robotic devices in late September.
GSDM faculty members participated in a rigorous two-day training on the Yomi system on September 25-26, 2019; additional two-day trainings will be held throughout October, and November. Once trained, faculty members will use the Yomi system on their own patients and will also instruct GSDM predoctoral students and postdoctoral residents on the technology.
“This technology is truly revolutionary and will change –and improve-the way we approach dental implant surgeries at the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine,” said Dr. Alexandra Bendayan, GSDM’s assistant dean of digital development and clinical training. “Introducing this advanced technology to our patient treatment centers will ensure that our predoctoral students and postdoctoral residents are prepared to be leaders in the field and will help to establish new standards of care for the profession.
Dr. Morin had the opportunity to be a part of this remarkable course at Boston University. She is thrilled to implement and offer this revolutionary technology to her patients. Please give our office a call to schedule an appointment today with Dr. Morin.
