It outlines different implant designs, thread type, and where each of these designs can be used. Surgical hands-on goes over diagnosis and treatment planning aspects as well as surgical principles including flap management, ridge analysis, and guided surgery. This course is designed for beginners who wish to start placing implants in their practices. This course is also recommended for doctors that have taken product-related courses from implant manufacturers.
Level II – Immediate Placement Tissue & Bone Grafting Course: Advanced Course

This course is a potpourri of most common procedures/techniques utilized in implant dentistry. It is recommended for doctors that have a fair amount of completed cases with a few complications that were unresolved or hit a roadblock in the way of completing the case. Recommended after Level I (only if you have already started a few cases), Level III and Level IV.
Level III – 5-Day Live Patient Surgery Course: From Novice to Specialist
This is a live patient surgery course that is recommended especially after taking Level I for beginners. This course is for anyone wanting to improve their surgical skills, knowledge, and/or for mastering surgical techniques in real-life scenarios. A wide variety of cases are performed during this course and doctors are able to choose the difficulty level they want to learn. Simple to very complex cases can be treated during this course. This course is a potpourri of most common procedures/techniques utilized in implant dentistry. This course is recommended for doctors that are just starting out or have been selective in their cases due to a lack of confidence and skill. This course will improve the skill level in all aspects of surgical implantology including but not limited to immediate placement, routine GBR, tissue grafting, crestal sinus approach, “Caldwell luc” approach, ridge expansion/splits, etc. Although there is a wide variety of procedures that are taught during these courses, it is important to pick a few procedures important to your practice and focus on learning them first. Since it is an unrealistic goal to expect to learn all the procedures in 5 days, we recommend taking baby steps. Traditionally, we recommend mastering the basic, routine surgical cases during the first course and once you have practiced those in your practice, then you may return to another course to learn a new set of skills.

This is for doctors that wish to learn prosthetic protocols and have already attended a Level I and/or Level II course with us.
