Dental Students Perform Robot-Assisted Implant Surgery
Dental students at New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry performed a robot-assisted implant surgery on May 4. As one of three dental schools with a robotic system for implant surgery, the school’s educators and post-doctoral students have already performed more than 150 procedures, but this was the first time dental students completed the entire surgery by themselves.
