Full Professor, Department of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry, The Maurice and Gabriela Goldschleger School of Dental Medicine, Tel Aviv University



Carlos E. Nemcovsky graduated from dental school in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1979 and subsequently undertook postgraduate studies in Periodontology at Tel Aviv University in Israel. He has been a Specialist in Periodontology since 1997 and is currently a Full Professor in the Department of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry at the School of Dental Medicine at Tel Aviv University. He is a former President of the Israel Periodontal and Osseointegration Society.


Dr. Nemcovsky is involved in both basic and clinical research, his main interest being tissue regeneration. He is the author or co-author of more than 100 scientific publications (including over 90 listed on Pubmed) in the leading international journals in the fields of Dental Research, Occlusion, Oral Rehabilitation, Periodontology and Dental Implants, as well as a number of book chapters. He is a member of the editorial board of Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research and is a reviewer for several scientific journals. Also known as a renowned international speaker, he has delivered more than 120 lectures.



Research interests include:

  • Periodontal and tissue regeneration
  • Effect of biologic materials on periodontal and gingival cells
  • Bone graft materials
  • Dental Implants: aesthetics, soft tissue management, treatment alternatives
  • Alveolar bone augmentation procedures
  • Resorbable collagen membranes
