The Program

Most clinicians believe that a comprehensive, didactic course of study followed by live clinical experiences are the gold standard in implant training. Over the past eleven years our program has evolved to provide what our students describe as a career changing professional experience. We know of no other course that offers all the crucial elements and flexibility necessary to best prepare you for success in placement of dental implants:

  • A concisely presented course of study guided by a core faculty to help you navigate the complexities involved and weigh the indications and advantages of the various techniques.
  • Seven three-day sessions spread over seven months provide participants ample opportunity to learn and apply new techniques. Implant dentistry is not learned in a weekend or a week. It is an evolution of your skills that you hone during a serious course of study.
  • Colleagues develop actual cases from their own practices, beginning with diagnosis and treatment planning, proceeding through surgical guide fabrication and 3-D analysis, and culminating in implant placement.
  • Live surgeries presented at each Friday session followed by discussion of the science and techniques that inform the surgeries.
  • All surgeries are videotaped and provided to every student. We believe that viewing instructional videos just prior to performing surgery improves outcomes.
  • Saturday and Sunday sessions featuring the world’s premier implant educators are designed to reinforce the concepts presented in the live surgeries. Through case presentations in a group participation atmosphere, we teach surgical implant placement and associated bone and tissue grafting techniques with the goal of redefining effective treatment planning.
  • Twenty plus hours of hands-on workshops to develop these skills on dental models and pig jaws.
  • Mentored surgeries to close the loop and develop your skills on real patients.
