Implant Surgery and Restoration Mini-Residency

Jul 18-19, 2014

Esthetics. Expectations. Excellence.

Implant placement from a Prosthodontic perspective… This step-by-step course will prepare you to successfully implement implant dentistry in your practice. Over four intensive two-day sessions, you will receive the mentored experience you need to master optimally placed dental implants for the best esthetic and functional restorations.

The course features hands-on implant placement practice on fresh frozen cadaver specimens, simulation manikins, and tabletop lab models for an in-depth educational experience. After multiple comprehensive hands-on instruction sessions, you will be mentored while surgically placing implants into your own patient*, giving you the confidence to apply these techniques in your own practice. Unlike other weekend courses where you buy equipment but never feel comfortable enough to go home and use it, our participants have 100% success rates in integration of implant placement into their practices.
