Correction: The following sentence in the recent Business Spotlight on La Jolla Oral and Facial Plastic Surgery was incorrect: “We’ve placed thousands of implants and our newest machine makes a custom crown and the abutment in just one visit.” Dr. Albert Lin and Dr. Robert Gramins of La Jolla Oral and Facial Plastic Surgery corrected the sentence to read: “We have placed thousands of implants, but do not have a new machine that makes crowns and abutments, nor do we want one or will ever invest in one in the future. We prefer to leave that in the hands of the many skilled colleagues we work with who are experts in the area of placing crowns, and instead stick to our own specialty, surgery.”
