oral_logo-1.pngHarbor Light OMS (Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Implants & Periodontal Surgery) located in Toledo, OH recently wrapped up their 3-day, on-site PIC pro training! They are a leading clinic in the Toledo area with four locations. During their training, one of the head surgeons, Dr. Benjamin Simonton mentioned that the outcome of the restoration after using the PIC system far surpassed what he and the patients expected.

Dr. O’Neill is one of the top dentists at Harbor Light and his current focus is on multidisciplinary digital dentistry, guided implant surgery and incorporating the Digital Smile Design (DSD) workflow into his practice. One quote that he always lives by is, “I try to find the fun in the work”. He told the PIC dental team he’s never been able to find the fun for dental conversions until the PIC system came along.

Dr. O’Neill and his team are proud to have a clinic that already uses many digital tools. They loved a guided workflow, but their weak link was the time it takes for the whole conversion process. It was time-consuming for the doctors and assistants, but more importantly for the patients. With four locations, the team is dealing with a large volume of patients that all have different needs. Therefore, they were on the hunt for a solution that was just right for them.

“If you’re at all interested in All-on-X restorations, then you need to get a PIC system"

Dr. O’Neill was first introduced to the PIC system during a DSD course with Dr. Christian Coachman. Dr. Coachman is a long-time PIC system user and collaborator, so he introduced Dr. O’Neill to the PIC dental team, and the rest is history! 

“PIC system will save your life if you’re doing full arches”

The team at Harbor Light decided to go with the portable PIC system form factor, the ideal option for a team that works at four different locations and needs to frequently transport the unit. With its All-In-One design, the portable PIC system is a case that contains everything needed to complete an implants' measurement: a built-in computer, large touchscreen and storage for the PIC camera and PIC transfers.

“There’s no going back, this is a game changer”

During their 3-day on-site PIC pro training, the team at Harbor Light only had positive things to say about their experience. They mentioned how user-friendly and ergonomic the system was when taking captures. Dr. Simonton and Dr. O’Neill both made a point to mention how the process from the first step to the last step of the full arch process is much more enjoyable now that they have the PIC system.

Both the assistants and doctors perceived the passive fit when screwing the prostheses in the patient’s mouths, and even the patients themselves noticed it. There was no pain for the patients, and they left their appointments with the confidence of a predictable restoration that is made to last.

“We delivered beautiful arches, quickly and passively, with exceptionally happy patients”

This dental practice’s goal is “to exceed the expectations of those who rely on us.” We are happy and proud to say we have achieved this with Harbor Light OMS during their PIC pro training. They will now continue to deliver beautiful cases with a newfound enjoyment for the full arch restoration process!
