This 15-day course teaches the General Dentist the necessary skills to place implants for patients in their practice in a controlled and predictable environment. 

Implant Dentistry is a prosthetically driven discipline with a surgical component and this rational is enforced throughout this course. This philosophy, “to begin with the end in mind”, gives the Dentist the necessary armamentarium to be successful in implantology.
