Sept. 19, 2013

Palm Beach Gardens, FL – (9/18/13) – BIOMET 3i and the American Academy of Periodontology Foundation are pleased to announce the 10th Anniversary of the Richard J. Lazzara Fellowship in Advanced Implant Surgery.

The fellowship is intended to provide educational and clinical expertise that reflect the most current techniques in implant dentistry. The AAP Foundation Lazzara Fellowship provides a stipend for the Fellow as well as funds to offset the hosting institution’s overhead and administrative costs. It is a 12-month fellowship that takes place at the student’s training institution. It may begin upon the completion of the Fellow’s periodontal training program or when the Fellow starts the last six months of his/her periodontal program. The AAP Foundation selects the Fellow from a competitive application process and the winners have included young periodontists from around the world. BIOMET 3i will honor past nominees and winners of the fellowship at a special ceremony at the Lazzara Society Alumni Meeting in Philadelphia on September 28, 2013.

This year’s Fellowship winner is Michael Fetner, DMD, MS, from the University of Florida, College of Dentistry.
