Dr. Leo is one of just a few dentists in Georgia to receive this honor. Nominees for Diplomate come from two sources: ICOI Vice Presidents may nominate such individuals for approval by the Board of Directors and the Diplomate Committee. Such candidates are chosen from amongst those who have most significantly contributed to the art and science of oral implantology.
The ICOI also conducts a Diplomate program in which active members are encouraged to achieve Diplomate status through their efforts in education, research and actual clinical experience. All Diplomates of the ICOI may designate “D.I.C.O.I.” after their names.
Dr. Leo was awarded Diplomate status a second time by the Board of Directors of the International Dental Implant Association in September of 2011 in Miami, FL. Very few dentists obtain Diplomate status in Dental Implantology twice in their lifetimes, especially by two different globally-recognized organizations.
