Marshall D. Fagin, DDS Prosthodontist

Dr. Marshall Fagin is a Prosthodontist and as an international lecturer and educator for over 35 years, he frequently updates his colleagues on the most recent advances in his specialty, including cosmetic and implant dentistry and on complex major crown and bridge cases. In 2013 he received the highest honor given by his local Dental Society, the coveted Frank Stone Award, for his many years of contributions to dentistry, dental education and to organized dentistry. In private practice, he is also a part-time Associate Professor at UB's Dental School.

He has conducted several "Hands-On" courses for dentists on "Anterior Esthetic Makeovers" at the school's Esthetic Dentistry Education Center and for the University of Florida School of Dentistry's Mastership Program in Fixed Prosthetics. He was voted by his colleagues to "Best Dentists in America" 2004/2005 and 2013, "Global Who's Who Man of the Year" in Dental Health 2008," Top Dentists" 2008/2014/2015 and was elected to faculty membership in the Honorary Dental Society Omicron Kappa Upsilon. He was awarded Diplomat status in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists in 1994 and is a Fellowship recipient of the International College of Dentists for his contributions to Dentistry.

Dr. Fagin also served on faculty for the Misch Implant Institute 1991‐1993 (Detroit, Michigan) and 2005‐2006 (Rochester, NY). Dr. Fagin has also lead many community initiatives to help those less advantaged to receive dental care, including 'Dentistry Smiles on Veterans Day', volunteering at the Good Neighbors Clinic and others, and recently to educate our colleagues about Victims of Domestic Violence and provide care for them.

Over the past 3 years, Dr. Fagin has played a leadership role in helping to increase public awareness of how the field of Prosthodontics can enhance peoples lives and has engaged Buffalo's Mayor Byron Brown to create a Proclamation for Prosthodontic Awareness Week each April. In 2015 Dr. Fagin coordinated the Dental School, Eighth District Dental Society, Dental Labs and Hygienists for a new Event: "Dentistry Smiles on Veterans" day with almost 200 volunteers, providing pro bono dental care for Veterans who have so selflessly given of themselves for us.

And through East Amherst Dental Center, their practice raises significant funds yearly for Smiles for Life , supporting Camp Good Days and the Garth Brooks Foundation for kids with cancer. http://www.transformyoursmile.com

  • Transforming & understanding patient's wants and needs into case acceptance
  • Treatment planning from diagnostic wax-up to surgical template design while weighing multiple risk factors and their impact on success
  • The critical role of Sirona's Conebeam technology in diagnostic planning
  • Utilization of Cerec Omnicam for digital wax-up and seamless integration with conebeam for fabrication of precision milled surgical guide and ease of execution of implant surgery
  • Variables impacting implant selection
  • Identifying potential esthetic challenges and steps for success
  • To splint or not to splint?
  • Review of key occlusal concepts that impact long term success with both combination implants ‐ natural teeth cases and edentulous cases
Part II

Utilizing the principles and technologies from 'Implants ‐Part 1', learn how to apply these and other concepts and techniques for creating success and less stress in design, fabrication and delivery of prosthesis.

  • Understanding the role of provisionals and biomechanics for success in progressive loading
  • Learn temporization techniques in both fixed and removable cases, testing esthetics, phonetics, lip support, and how to create custom emergence profiles
  • Understand the significant impact of Cerec digital planning and milling for immediate placement of custom healing abutments and temporary crowns.
  • Learn how combining Cerec and conebeam technology for planning computer designed abutments and crowns, creates great fit and improved esthetic outcomes more quickly and efficiently with Ti-Base or Scan Body
  • Screw-in vs. cement-on?
