Michael Foley - Distributor of Ceramic Dental Implants

Michael Foley

The Founder

Michael Foley is a Dental Industry Executive, Distributor of Metal-Free Ceramic Implants, Biocompatiblity Product Entrepreneur and Investor.

He is the President and Founder of Emerginnova which is a distributor of ZERAMEX in the US market. ZERAMEX is a growing company with a solution that is evolved like metal-implants but has all of the benefits of Ceramic Implants. Zirconia dental Implants are a hot topic in Implant dentistry at present time. Patients have a huge demand for the most esthetic and biologically compatible options.

The future of implants has never looked brighter!

Michael attended the University of Georgia and throughout school he had his eye on working in export management, representing the U.S. and managing sales to other countries, specifically Europe. His fluency in French led to an opportunity with Anthogyr and their desire to bring their AXIOM implants into the U.S. market. Anthogyr is a dental equipment manufacturer based in France near Geneva, Switzerland. Since working as Anthogyr’s North American Agent of distribution and sales in 2006, he has had an interest in biological dentistry.

Michael got engrossed by the idea of ceramic implants after a meeting that he attended in Miami with the International Academy of Ceramic Implants (IAOCI). He then got introduced to the ZERAMEX system, a two-piece, screw-retained ceramic implant. The big reason why Michael became involved in biological dental solutions and ZERAMEX ceramic dental implants is because then and now, all the ceramic implants in the U.S. were manufactured with the implant and abutment as a single piece. This can cause temporization (integration) issues for a patient and make removing the abutment difficult.
No one knows more about the Dental Implant market and the future of this sector than Michael Foley.
Michael is often being invited as an expert on the industry trends by dental professionals and dental health enthusiasts.
