NEW YORK, U.S.: BioHorizons Implant System, a leading global provider of dental implant and tissue regeneration products, has donated funding and in-kind support to the New York University College of Dentistry (NYU Dentistry) to facilitate access to dental implants for patients in need and to enhance the college’s continuing education programs.

The donation includes BioHorizons dental implant products, and this will help lower the cost of implant therapy for patients, including those treated at the NYU Dentistry Oral Health Center for People with Disabilities and NYU Dentistry Brooklyn Patient Care. In addition, the gift will contribute towards the newly created Patient Care Access Fund, which supports those patients who otherwise would not be able to afford dental implants as part of their treatment.

“This generous gift from BioHorizons will subsidize the cost of dental implant treatment for many patients and put this restorative option within reach,” said Prof. Robert Glickman, associate dean for clinical affairs and hospital relations and chair of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at NYU Dentistry, in a university press release.

Steve Boggan, president and CEO of BioHorizons, commented: “BioHorizons is honored to support the faculty and be part of the education and training for NYU residents, students, and comprehensive dental provider network. We hope that this donation will provide the NYU dental community with the tools needed to enhance smiles and overall health for those who need it most during this time.”

The funding will also support NYU Dental’s continuing dental education programs and will allow the college to develop new offerings in prosthodontics and implant dentistry.

“NYU is a leader not only in implant dentistry, but in the hands-on training of new dentists and seasoned professionals to provide cutting-edge, evidence-based care that restores healthy smiles. We are grateful for BioHorizons’ investment in the ongoing learning of dentists,” said Dr. Charles N. Bertolami, the Herman Robert Fox dean of NYU Dentistry.
