Surgical Implant Management II

Instructor: Norm Ickert, DMD and Dean E. Kois, DMD, MSD


Kois Center Adjunct Course: “Surgical Implant Management I” (or equivalent experience level from other outside courses)

Course Overview:

Many current or proposed implant locations are not initially suitable for implant placement. This course is focused on the surgical management of advanced implant and augmentation protocols for successfully treating compromised sites. Many of these sites require adjunctive procedures such as soft tissue grafting, bone grafting or a combination of both either simultaneously or in a phased approach. The goal is to develop a system that ensures minimal risk and maximizes the predictability of optimal treatment outcomes. Practical hands-on laboratory exercises, along with a multi-media approach will be used to illustrate and solidify all principles.

“After 25 years in dentistry, the two implant courses offered through the Kois Center have provided me with the knowledge and confidence to start placing implants in my practice. Over the years, I have taken many surgical implant courses where I have placed numerous implants into specially designed models and pig jaw bones. I never felt that any of these ever really prepared me to deal with the complexities that I would encounter. These courses presented by Norm and Dean have cleared the fog by providing detailed principles to follow in bone grafting and tissue augmentation techniques to promote success in Implant dentistry. These courses are exactly what I needed. Thank you so much for your efforts in providing this experience.”
