During the summer of 1980, the Midwest Implant Institute introduced The Surgical Externship Program due the demand of course participants, becoming the First Implant-Institute-Based Live Surgical Program in The United States. Almost 40 years and thousands of doctors later, the program continues to remiain as a career and practice altering experience that provides everlasting support, education, mentorship and backing for each participant.
The Midwest Implant Institute has taught practicioners of all skill and experience levels. MII Graduates have obtained all levels of success from developing practices completely limited to implant dentistry to the highest honors, achievements, and awards known world-wide within implant dentistry from the most prestigious organizations.
Simply stated, this isn't a weekend implant course or a single session of placing implants. The Surgical Externship at The Midwest Implant Institute reaches far beyond just a surgical program, now is the time to learn why the MII Externs become MII Fellows, and experience a lifetime career of success in Implant Dentistry. . .

The Externship is Tailor-Made for You. Tired of trying to cram your education in certain schedules with no flexibility? The MII Surgical Externship Schedule is made by you. The Extern doctor can choose to power through to graduation or take as long as they need, depending on their schedule. Let's face it, your time is production. It just makes sense for you to schedule your surgical training sessions when it most benefits you and your patients.
Proper Surgical Training Needs a Proper Schedule. Sometimes performing all of your surgical training in one week or weekend doesn't work well. The Midwest Implant Institute Surgical program expands to the doctor's desires and needs. . . and so does the schedule to accommodate the proper education and experience.
Live Surgery on Your Patients. Since 1980, The Midwest Implant Institute has been the home of Live Surgery on Your Patients...and it continues to be. MII simply believes that performing surgery by itself without restoration is just a snapshot of implant dentistry. This is why MII strongly encourages bringing your own patients so the Extern can complete the entirety of Implant therapy.
This Externship Can Pay for Itself. The format of The Surgical Externship allows the participant to complete the restorative process in their office, capturing production, yet with unlimited educational access of MII. It is imperative to understand that successful implant dentistry is more than just placing implants on patients you will never see again. Flying abroad or performing surgery on a weekend has limited educational value. Truth be told, simply your patients want you to perform their treatment. . . to its entirety.
We Have the Latest Technology and It's All Yours. The Midwest Implant Institute has always believed that if you want to do a surgery using technology and instruments that you have in your office to mimic your office experience then that is the experience you should have at MII. But if you want to try Technology that you are interested in or see what can make you more efficient, then you should have that option as well.
You name it. Let's do it. Whether you want to begin with an incision with a laser, use a Peizosurgery, CBCT, guided surgery materials, bone spreading kits, or many others, the MII externship stays on the forefront technology and allows you to use it to see if it is for you. No more buying technology before you really know if you want it. No more buying expensive doorstops to collect dust. . .
The Implant Education Never Ends, Neither Does the CE. It is simple really, as long as you are learning at The Midwest Implant Institute, you are earning CE. Once you enter the Surgical Externship Program, you will earn between 60-70 hours CE. But most externs continue to bringing their patients for surgery and raise their surgical ceiling after their graduation... and those externs continue to earn CE.
The Surgical Externship is 60-70 Hours CE. The Extern doctor can expect to earn 60-70 Implant-Specific CE credits, which qualifies toward other prestigious implant programs such as the American Academy of Implant Dentistry Fellowship and the Midwest Implant Institute Fellowship among many others. As mentioned above, the MII Extern CE is Never-Ending, with many doctors obtaining over 200 CE credits as they performed surgeries at the highest level under the MII mentorship.

Graduation is held in the highest esteem in dental implant education circles. No other known opportunity will allow all Externs who wish to do surgery on multiple patients to get a temporary dental license. Since 1980, thousands of dentists and staff have gained personal hands-on dental implant step-by-step education.
After completion of The All-Inclusive Live Surgical Course , the doctor and staff will qualify to begin the MII Externship Program. Each Extern participant will be shown how to put together proper x-rays showing necessary anatomy, proper mounted diagnostic casts, completed medical history, and protocol necessary to qualify their patients for personal implant therapy by the Extern and their staff members.
The Surgical Externship Program [EXT] where a doctor from any state in the United States, providing they are in good standing in their state with their own dental board, can obtain an Ohio State Dental Temporary License to perform surgery on their own patients. Having the opportunity to diagnose and treat your own patients with implant placement, whom you will finish the prosthetics in your own office, is exciting and beyond words to describe “true dental education experience.” Because you have a personal relationship with the patients in your office, they trust you and will help you if asked properly.
The Hands-On, Mentored Surgery That You Are Looking For. . .
Each extern is required to assist with seven implants and to personally place seven implants. By assisting the surgical placement of implants by an MII Faculty member allows the MII Externs to see the correct surgical protocol and how to easily place implants with predictability. After assisting on a specific surgical procedure the MII Extern will perform that similar procedure under the personal eyes of the MII Faculty member with the doctors staff assisting that procedure. The MII staff faculty will be guiding your staff during the procedure. After successful completion the doctor and staff will discuss the completed procedure in detail with MII Faculty. Doctor has the opportunity to ask questions and take constructive suggestions for future similar procedures.
Maxillary Anterior Requirement using bone spreading osteotomes. Maxillary anterior bone usually is less dense than mandibular bone. Using bone spreading osteotomes will allow the Extern to manipulate maxillary bone from type 3 or type 4 bone to type 2 bone gaining compaction of bone cells close to the implant that is threaded to place. Proper use of osteotomes increases maxillary anterior implant success rates. The MII Extern will learn how to take 3.5mm of bone width and spread the bone to accept a 3.7mm implant leaving one millimeter of buccal and one millimeter of lingual bony receptor site. The MII Extern will assist and then personally place a Maxillary Anterior Implant.
Maxillary Posterior Requirement using bone spreading osteotomes. Maxillary posterior (Bicuspid and Molar) bone usually is less dense than mandibular bone in the Bicuspid and Molar areas. Using bone spreading osteotomes will allow the Extern to manipulate maxillary bone from type 3 or type 4 bone to type 2 bone gaining compaction of bone cells close to the implant that is threaded to place. Proper use of osteotomes increases maxillary posterior implant success rates. Straight and angled instruction will be given to allow proper vertical placement of posterior implants. The MII Extern will assist and then personally place a Maxillary Posterior Implant
Mandibular Posterior Requirement using rotary instrumentation. Mandibular Posterior (Bicuspid and Molar) implant placement usually has an adequate cortical plate of bone with varied medullary bone. Using infiltration anesthesia, the area is properly anesthetized, allowing for the following surgical protocol to be utilized: Use of surgical guide where 2 or more mandibular implants will be placed. Protocol to mark tissue and then proper bone location using the surgical guide. Placement of a pilot drill to a prescribed depth that has been previously determined. Placement of parallel pin and proper periapical x-ray taken Determination of desired depth and width of implant to be placed Placement of implant healing screw or tissue abutment Proper suturing of surgical area Proper x-ray and patient record recording Post-op medication given for specific procedures
Each MII Extern will assist and personally place a mandibular posterior implant. Mandibular Anterior Requirement using rotary instrumentation. Mandibular anterior implant placement for utilizing a bar over-denture or attachment retained lower supported denture is described in detail before tissue reflection and implant placement. The bar over-denture is the most successful implant prosthesis utilized in implant dentistry. After reflection of tissue, the MII Extern will prepare the available remaining bone to accept four implants between the mental foreman bilaterally. After placement of the implants, healing abutments will be placed on the implants and tissue sutured around the healing abutments. The removable denture is relined with a soft reline using the implant healing abutments as support. Each MII Extern will assist and personally place mandibular anterior implants for support of a implant supported denture.
