Surgical Implant Management
Instructor: Dean E. Kois, DMD, MSD
This course is designed for the general dentist or specialist who wants to increase the depth and breadth of their knowledge in implant dentistry. Surgical needs are often not compatible with restorative needs; this dichotomy will be explored and discussed from both perspectives. A balanced, detailed curriculum including implant treatment planning, anatomical considerations and limitations, wound healing, extraction socket management, implant selection criteria, diagnostic CBCT imaging, surgical techniques, guided surgery, basic bone grafting, blood concentrates, as well as restorative concepts will be covered. Avoiding surgical complications by promoting safety and predictability when placing dental implants will create confidence in the treating clinician. Current scientific concepts, hands- on exercises, blood concentrates demonstration (prf) and live patient surgeries will be used to highlight all principles. At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to predictably place dental implants into most sites, as well as, restore these implant- supported restorations. Whether you want to improve your communication with your surgeon or you want to add these procedures to your practice this course will provide that information in a concise, applicable way.
“The course content is highly thorough, in-depth, and very clinically applicable. The resources that were provided are a must-have bible for all aspects of implant dentistry. These are hands-down the best implant courses that I have been to in my career. I highly recommend this course to ALL dentists who are either thinking about placing implants, who are placing implants, or who have been placing implants for years.”
