Dr Francisco dos Santos
Dr. Francisco Marques dos Santos graduated from dental school at the ISCS Egas Moniz, Lisbon, Portugal. After achieving some postgraduate training in fixed prosthodontics and CAD-CAM systems, he practiced as a general dentist with special interest in fixed prosthodontics. After developing his general dentistry skills, he found his passion in the field of oral rehabilitation, from re- constructive surgical procedures to implant placement and aesthetic rehabilitation.
He decided then to move to New York, where under the supervision of Dr. Dennis Tarnow – one of the world leaders in implant dentistry – he successfully completed the international program In advanced implant dentistry at New York University College Of Dentistry. During his residency Francisco had the opportunity to develop, and present, some research work in the field of bone grafting, Dental implant design and surface, and prosthetic rehabilitation of dental Implants. His academic work was presented and awarded by some of the most prestigious academies in the world, such as the American Academy of Osseointegration, Greater New York dental meeting, North Eastern Society of Implant Dentistry, NYU Research Day.
Francisco also completed a certificate in Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques under the supervision of Dr. Mike Pikos at the Pikos Institute, Tampa, Florida, USA. Dr. Santos decided then to relocate to the UK, London where he took the clinical direction of an Implant Centre working, as well, as principle full time implantologist. Francisco successfully placed more than 10000 implants and has performed more than 4000 bone grafts among other surgical procedures. He then started a brand new project owned and led by him.
