This course will allow clinicians to build fundamental knowledge of implant placement, diagnosis and treatment, basic surgical principles (such as suturing, incisions, and flap design), and operation on single and multiple implants on partially edentulous patients. After this course, you will be expected to understand the planning and surgical protocol for the use of surgical templates. You will know how to perform proper placement of dental implants through free-handed and computer guided surgery. You will perform live surgeries on patients in a group of two and one instructor will be supervising the entire surgery.
