There is no better place to build confidence in implant dentistry than through the 4-day live-patient surgical training under the direct supervision of our instructors. This program focuses on the core practices and techniques to boost your confidence and skills as an implant surgeon. This program is designed to emphasize training in a clinical environment. You will be expected to learn crucial elements such as the evaluation of clinical cases, treatment planning, surgical techniques, and pain management. Each patient case is custom-tailored with individualized instructor care, where instructors will fulfill your needs under expert supervision. You will perform live surgeries on patients in a group of two, and one instructor will supervise the entire surgery.
