Dr. Osorio is one of the pioneers that revolutionized the replacement of missing teeth with dental implants. In 1993, he designed and patented the dental implant abutment system that made it possible for practitioners to achieve predictable, superior esthetic results in fewer patient visits, while eliminating the complexity associated with traditional implant solutions, which only focused on replacing function. In 1996 Dr. Osorio founded Atlantis Components, Inc., a company committed to merging the long-lasting function of dental implants with esthetic results. In 2007 The US National Association of Dental Implant Laboratories elected Atlantis “Supplier of the Year”. Today, Atlantis Components, Inc. is a owned by Dentsply Implants, which supplies Dr. Osorio’s abutment technology to the world’s leading implant manufactures such as Astra, Nobel and 3i.

He also serves in the Dean’s Board of Advisors at Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine.
Dr. Julian Osorio obtained his dental degree from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogota, Colombia in 1979. He obtained his DMD, Master of Science in Dentistry, and his post-graduate training in Prosthodontics from Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine.
Dr. Osorio joined Watkin Dental Associates in 1992 and subsequently became a full partner and now the sole owner of Osorio Dental Group. He lectures internationally to dentists and implant surgeons on the latest advancements in dental implant technology and developments helping achieve ideal esthetics and healing time.
