Dr. William F. Thornell, of Pagosa Springs, earned diplomate status within the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) on Jan. 17. The awarding of diplomate status is the highest honor a professional society such as the ICOI can bestow on a dental professional involved in oral implantology. The ICOI conducts a diplomate program in which active members are encouraged to achieve diplomate status through their efforts in education, research and actual clinical experience.
