Dr.Linkow was pioneer and a father of oral implantology, responsible for numerous innovations. Among his major contributions are the blade implant, self-tapping ventplant root form implant, tripodal subperiosteal implant, immediate loading and the internal hex design for root form implants.
Dr.Linkow was the only dentist to be nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1969.
In 1999 Dr.Anastassov and Dr.Linkow united to create “Linkow Institute for Advanced Implantology and Aesthetic and Reconstructive Maxillofacial Surgery”. Two doctors built an entirely new facility equipped with state of the art instrumentarium and fully accredited operating room on the premises.
Dr. Linkow worked until 2002 when he retired from active clinical practice.
“I learned a lot from Dr. Linkow in oral implantology but much more importantly, I learned how to strive for perfection, never compromise, always find a solution no matter what the circumstances are and remember that the ultimate “hero” is the patient, not the one treating him”, says Dr.Anastassov.
