It has been a pleasure collaborating with OPM - the leaders in PEKK technology - as they advance their 3D printed OsteoFab® process into the world of All-on-4 implants.
SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (PRWEB) April 15, 2021
Oxford Performance Materials, Inc. (OPM), an industry leader in advanced polymer science and 3D printed orthopedic devices, today announced that Jack T. Krauser, DMD, has joined the Company’s Strategic & Scientific Advisory Board.
An innovator in dental implant procedures and President & Director of The Implant Center of the Palm Beaches, Dr. Krauser has spent much of his career evaluating the full range of materials in dentistry, with a particular focus on “All-on-4” procedures that provide patients with a fixed full arch prostheses.
“We are very pleased that Dr. Krauser – a student of materials science and early innovator in dental prosthetic procedures – is joining OPM’s Strategic & Scientific Advisory Board. Jack is a true pioneer in the field of dental implants, and clearly appreciates the role that biopolymers play in the development of world-class implant solutions,” said Scott DeFelice, Chairman & CEO. “We have benefitted from Jack’s expertise in advancing our PEKK CAD/CAM product line and our ongoing efforts to offer superior clinical solutions to current and underserved markets.”
Dr. Krauser stated, “Advances in material science and new manufacturing technologies are critical in improving clinical outcomes in dentistry, especially for our aging and health compromised populations. It has been a pleasure collaborating with OPM - the leaders in PEKK technology - as they advance their 3D printed OsteoFab® process into the world of All-on-4 implants. This development promises to be a first in the industry, coupling improved product performance with a lower cost model. Very exciting stuff!”
