RDI Core Series attendees understand the importance of the “why” in dental implant placement
March 24, 2023
Understanding the “Why” is important when it comes to learning how to place dental implants. In our Spring 2023 RDI Core Series Day 1 Surgical Principles course instructed by Dr. Brad Millard, a great deal of the “why” was discussed during the lecture. He lectured on “why” certain medications are recommended and “why” following a step-by-step systematic approach is extremely beneficial. Additionally, he covered “why” case selection is important, specifically addressing what makes it a good case to move forward with. Lastly, he covered “why” referring certain cases out is highly important to your overall dental implant placement success.
In addition to the lecture, attendees enjoyed the multiple hands-on activities during Core Series day 1. Many doctors expressed how the suturing portion was exceptionally valuable. Multiple mentors attend each of our courses and make a point to spend one-on-one time with attendees. The mentors care about making sure questions are never left unanswered and ensuring each attendee feels comfortable and confident with the topics discussed.
Dr. Wesley Mullins highlighted Healed Ridge in the Core Series 2 presentation. He discussed the importance of managing implant treatment, following a precision guided approach, and understanding failures and how to avoid and react to them. Attendees were engaged during the step-by-step protocols lecture and enjoyed the hands-on drilling experience. You could see the sense of ease over the doctors faces as they begin to better understand the biologic factors around implant placement and what leads to successful osseointegration.
“This course is giving me more confidence in my implant understanding and makes me excited to become a great implant dentist.”
It was great to see attendees interacting with each other during the hands-on activities. As Dr. Springer commented, “This course is giving me more confidence in my implant understanding and makes me excited to become a great implant dentist.” Many of the doctors expressed in their course evaluations how the experience is exceeding expectations and can’t wait for the Core Series 2 session.
