How Will Dental Implants Change My Practice?
By offering dental implants in your practice, you’ll be providing your patients with the best in restorative treatment. Your patients will appreciate the convenience of receiving implant care from you and your team, rather than being referred outside your practice.

Can I Take Just One or a Combination of the Course Offerings?
For the doctor with little or no dental implant experience, the course offerings are best taken in true continuum style; Introduction, Levels 2 and 3. Building upon the Introduction, Levels 2 and 3 present advanced techniques and procedures allowing participants to offer their patients start to finish implant treatment.
For the doctor who has some implant experience and who may be doing a few implant procedures, Levels 2 and 3 may be more appropriate. See the course outlines to determine which course(s) best suits your educational needs.
We allow ample opportunity for group discussion, questions, and case presentations. Each course ensures a consistent and comprehensive approach to dental implant education.
Are the Courses Appropriate for My Dental Team?
These courses are extremely relevant for chair side dental assistants. They will gain an understanding of surgical procedures, the healing process, and final restoration. Other team members may benefit from an understanding of dental implant therapy from start to finish. Additionally, treatment plan presentation and marketing are more effective when your entire team has a firm understanding of the procedures.
