Dental Implant Courses
Browse through our continuing education dental implant courses and mini residency
Course I: Basic Dental Implant Mini Residency
Participants will learn implant dentistry on a consistent weekly basis with academic and clinical course experience. Many implant courses "cram" too much information into a short weekend course. In this mini-residency, participants will view or perform live prosthetics and/or live implant surgery on patients. This gives dentists clinical time to review instruction and bring practical experience to and from their own offices each week. Plus attendance is limited to ensure individual attention. The course is hands-on and will include working on your own patient case! You will follow the development of over 20 patient cases.
