On November 30, 2012, Dr. Noumbissi spoke at Columbia University School of Dental Medicine. In attendance were the faculty and postgraduate students from the department of Periodontics and Implant Surgery, Prosthodontics and from the International Implant Program. Professor Charles Berman one the the elder statesmen of implant dentistry and the faculty in the periodontics program facilitated this event. I would like to thank all that were in attendance and their high interest in this revolutionary area of dental implantology .
