So what is "All-Inclusive?"  The fee includes Registration for the doctor, one staff member, one dental implant, healing abutment, small bone graft, and all surgical supplies to perform the surgery.  Additionally, the patient is yours!  After a full first day of hands-on training and didactic preparation, you will enter day two.  Day two is completely case assessment and preparation for the participant's Live Surgery. Unfortunately, this course is limited in size and there is a time frame to submit your paperwork for your license. Our staff is completely trained to help guide you through obtaining an out-of-state temporary license if you are not practicing in Ohio.  It is a simple process yet can take between 4-8 weeks.  So register today or simply give us a call if you have any questions! 

Simple clinical and didactic basis of multiple aspects of step-by-step dental implant surgery, prosthetics and staff training. This complete course will allow you to see the value of incorporating implant dentistry within your practice and prepare you and your staff to begin training in live surgery! 

The benefits of Live Surgery by the Participant/Attendee are many, but it allows the participant to learn in greater depth and have their own surgical experience. Having the ability to personally perform a surgical implant procedure together with interactive case discussion allows the participant to live in the “real world” surgical aspect. Post-operative group discussion allows the participant to express their opinions and offer clinical suggestions. This Classroom/Surgical Operatory Hybrid course promotes clinical, classroom and peer-to-peer educational environment discussing multiple implant procedures. 

Within The All Inclusive Live Surgical Course (411), the participant will review multiple facets of implant dentistry. The instructional and hands-on foundation includes the basic anatomy and tissue management for simple implant placement. Diagnosis and treatment planning give the doctor knowledge in planning for implant treatment. Reasons for implant thread design and internal prosthetic components of different systems are discussed. Bone spreading and rotary instrumentation is demonstrated in maxillary and mandibular bone as well as discussion of bone grafting techniques. Hands-on placement of implants in technique models allows the participant to get a tactile feel for the ease of placing implants. Assistants role in serving the doctor during surgery as well as post-operatively with the patient are discussed. Future of dentistry and demographics show that implant treatment is the fastest growing segment of a dental practice. Participants will learn the Midwest Implant Institute Externship Program Requirements.
