He received his undergraduate degree in Genetics at the University of Western Ontario, and also received his DDS at the University of Western Ontario Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry (2009). Subsequently, he completed a one year general practice residency at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, followed by specialty training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Toronto (2014). During specialty training, he completed a Masters of Science (MSc) in the field of bone biology, with particular focus on bone grafting and regeneration.
Dr. Ta is an active hospital staff member at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Trillium Health Partners. He is a clinical instructor at the University of Toronto, in the department of Oral Surgery. He is an active member of the Halton Peel Dental Association, Ontario Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and the Ontario Dental Association.
Dr. David Psutka is a specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery. He is a graduate of Dentistry and Oral and Maxillofacial surgery from the University of Toronto. He is founder of Fountain View Oral, Facial and Implant Surgery in Mississauga where he has practiced for 38 years.
Hi is an assistant professor at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Dentistry where he teaches in the graduate Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery program.
He is a cofounder and senior surgeon at the Mount Sinai Hospital Centre for Excellence in TMJ Reconstructive Surgery, established in 1995.
He is the co-director of the University of Toronto Fellowship Program in Advanced TMJ and orthognathic Surgery.

Dr. Psutka has presented over 140 lectures and publications. He has lectured, taught and, demonstrated surgery across North America, Europe and Australia.
He has held numerous portfolios in organized dentistry. He was a member of the ad hoc committee struck by the RCDSO Quality Assurance Committee to update the Guidelines for Implant Treatment.
He received the Ontario Dental Association Service award in 2009.
Predictable implant placement requires a solid foundation of bone for implant placement. Unfortunately bone quantity may often be inadequate due to long standing edentulism, chronic periodontal/ per-implant disease, pathological conditions and trauma.
Autogenous bone grafting has long been considered the gold stand in pre-prosthetic grafting. Recent advances in regenerative medicine have opened new avenues to reconstruct the alveolus while avoiding donor site morbidity through the use of growth factors. This lecture will review new advances in pre-prosthetic bone reconstruction.
- Review the principles of bone grafting
- Explore growth factor based regenerative medicine in reconstructing alveolar defects.
- Review clinical cases of growth factor based implant reconstruction.
