Dr. Gregory Toback, New London Periodontist, Receives AAP Clinical Research Award

Well-regarded periodontist in New London, CT and Westerly, RI, Dr. Gregory Toback, has received a special honor for his clinical work from the prestigious American Academy of Periodontology (AAP). Dr. Toback and a team of esteemed colleagues published research entitled, "A randomized, controlled, multicenter clinical trial of post-extraction alveolar ridge preservation,” which led the AAP to present them with the Clinical Research Award.

The research conducted by Dr. Toback and his team examined innovative ways to provide patients with better soft tissue healing, as well as improved ridge preservation, before the placement of dental implants. His hope is to expand the abilities of periodontics and enhance treatment options for patients with continued study and research.

The AAP’s Clinical Research Award is given to periodontal professionals who offer the public and their peers outstanding published scientific articles with direct clinical relevance to periodontics. Recipients of the Clinical Research Award must present the AAP with articles that meet several key criteria, including direct application to periodontics and an offering of new information.

Dr. Toback’s award-winning research was published in the December 2016 Journal of Clinical Periodontology.
