Course Description

This two-year program is designed to impart to participants the knowledge; skill set and confidence needed to deliver one of the most highly sought services in dentistry today. Dental implants offer not just cosmetic appeal for patients but a more solid foundation for a longer-term investment in their oral health. Dental implants have become the gold standard when it comes to restoring partially and completely edentulous patients. The main purpose of this course is to help dentists and their patients benefit from everything that dental implants have to offer. By integrating comprehensive implant dentistry into their practices, participants can elevate their practices to a higher level.

This course is comprised of a powerful lecture component as well as actual hands-on training. Through this program, participants will have the ability to provide implant treatment for at least four patients.

The course consists of a 1-day-a-week class (Monday) for two years and includes classroom instruction as well as hands-on learning, including live patient treatment. A morning or afternoon session in a clinic setting will incorporate a focus on surgery, prosthetics and working on patient treatment plans; the weekly session will feature lectures, case presentations and literature review.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate, Diagnose, and Establish an Optimal Treatment Plan
  • Critically Evaluate Literature Pertaining to Implant Dentistry
  • Comfortably Formulate and Critique Complex Case Presentations
  • Utilize CT Imagery for Treatment Planning & Computer Guided Surgeries
  • Perform Simple to Complex Surgical Extractions in an Atraumatic Manner
