Las Vegas Oral Surgeon is First in Western United States to offer New Implant Technology

Dr. Patrick O’Connor Debuts the RoboDent – LapDoc Surgical Navigational System in United States

LAS VEGAS - Dr. Patrick A. O’Connor, D.D.S. introduces the future of implant dentistry to his Las Vegas oral surgery practice with a new safe and cost-effective surgical technology, RoboDent-LapDoc Surgical Navigation System. He is the first doctor in the western United States (and one of two doctors in the country) to use this technology invented in Germany.

The RoboDent-LapDoc Surgical Navigational System, is a computer assisted oral implantology application that combines a 3D computerized planning system with actual real-time treatment for drilling the implant recipient site. The system uses an optical passive sensor to measure the location of the patient and the instrument in use. Thus when combined, the navigation system offers a clear outline of the anatomy and supports the precise placing of implants by means of its audible and visible signals.

“Through my long professional relationship with the founder and developers of RoboDent, I am honored to be the first doctor to bring the latest dental technology to Nevada,” said Dr. O’Connor. “The system allows me to adapt my planning to each individual patient, who in turn will benefit from the precise, proficient and safe surgical procedure.”

The original RoboDent project started in 2000 in Berlin, Germany at the University of Charite, Robotics division and became the most widely sold navigation system worldwide because of its intuitive user interface. Now, the RoboDent-LapDoc provides the next step in technology where the patient has accessibility to a computer navigated surgery without having to travel to a University Clinic because the unit is more compact for private practice application.

Dr. O’Connor specializes in oral and maxillofacial surgery at his practice. Dr. Patrick A. O’Connor, Ltd is located at Rancho Palomino Park, 630 Rancho Drive, Suite B, Las Vegas, NV 89106.
