During Core Series 1, you’ll set your implant journey in motion, focusing on principles of dental implantology before broadening your understanding of the restorative process via lectures, online modules, and hands-on learning. Core Series 2 expands on Series 1 learnings, deepening your knowledge by exploring topics like bone preservation and advancing your hands-on technique by using pig jaws to practice extractions, grafting, and more. Series 3 culminates in live patient surgeries; here, our mentors provide personalized over-the-shoulder guidance as you perfect your implant placement technique. Series 3 also includes an online segment to guide you and your staff as you implement what you’ve learned in your own practice.
Healed ridge & restorative
Core Series 1 sets your dental implant journey in motion. You’ll begin by learning the principles of dental implantology focusing on healed ridge, abundant bone implant sites before broadening your understanding of the restorative process, practicing using drills in different bone types, trying your hand at implant placement into mandibular bone models, and more. Series 1 spans two days and includes lectures, online modules, and hands-on components.
Surgical techniques and immediate placement
Building upon Core Series 1, you’ll progress to Core Series 2. During this two-day training, you’ll build on the knowledge and hands-on skill you developed in Series 1, deepening your understanding of implant dentistry and advancing your techniques. Series 2 lecture and online module topics include the art of bone preservation and bone healing dynamics, socket classification and treatment, immediate implant placement, and so much more. Its hands-on components involve practicing suturing techniques on chicken breasts and various training using pig jaws (extractions, grafting, suturing, and socket preservation).
Live patient implant surgery & implementation
After completing Core Series 1 and 2, you’ll move on to Core Series 3. After completing this series, you’ll be confident in your implant abilities and ready to achieve successful, repeatable implant results in your own practice. Series 3 features hands-on, live patient surgeries at a state-of-the-art dental clinic, as well as team training: doctors are encouraged to bring up to 2 members of their staff at no additional cost for lecture-based and hands-on education. Series 3 also includes an online segment that prepares doctors and their staff to implement their Core Series learnings in their own practice on Monday morning.
Our Master Series courses are for doctors that would like to deepen their implant expertise in order to treat patients with more complex cases. During Series 4, you’ll observe live patient surgeries focused on implant treatment planning and surgical and restorative implant complications and posterior maxilla management. Series 5 builds on the advanced knowledge gained during Series 4. Here, you’ll explore topics related to vertical horizontal ridge augmentation and anterior implant esthetics, and you’ll have the opportunity to observe a variety of related surgical procedures.
Implant Treatment Planning and Surgical & Restorative Implant Complications / Posterior Maxilla
Our Master Series courses are intended for doctors that would like to deepen their implant expertise in order to treat patients with more complex cases. During Master Series 4, which takes place over two days, you’ll observe live patient surgeries and enhance your knowledge when it comes to using shorty implants, lateral windows, and crestal lifts. You’ll also learn how to augment the ridge when you lack height and width, among other topics.
Vertical Horizontal Ridge Augmentation / Anterior Implant Esthetics
Master Series 5 builds on the knowledge and skills developed during Series 4 and dives into even more advanced learnings. Over the course of two days, you’ll observe a variety of surgical procedures and learn how to increase tissue thickness, plan implants in anterior aesthetic areas, and minimize complications during complex procedures. You’ll also delve into topics like soft tissue management and more. Day two focuses on full arch restorative implant options and treatment plans for best patient results.
This hands-on course is designed to prepare you to systematically review CBCT scans using the 3D imaging software. We will focus on efficiently manipulating CBCT scans and using different views that can be used in every scope of practice. Participants are asked to bring along a PC laptop to the session to benefit from case(s) discussion and software manipulation. We will review endodontic cases, implant planning, and airway. We will also cover the basics of radiation exposure and how to explain it to patients easily.
