Dr. Locante’s experience, skill, knowledge and passion for Dental Implantology has led him to be involved in the research and design of dental implants – both metallic and non-metallic (ceramic) – as well as bone cell and bone bioprotiens and healing mechanisms.

In addition to being Board Certified by the American Board of Oral Implantology, Dr. Locante is also an Honored Fellow in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and a Diplomat in the International Congress of Oral Implantology.
