UMSOD Implantology Continuum Course - Now Accepting Registrations for 2021 Continuum
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.
