We offer a comprehensive education program in all disciplines of implant dentistry with the latest technology available.
Digital technology promises to increase case acceptance, improve clinical predictability, elevate our patient’s experience and streamline team communication. But how does all of this actually come together? Whether you are a surgical or restorative clinician, investing in a TRIOS intraoral scanner is the critical first step in implementing digital techniques in dentistry. To realize its true potential it is necessary to learn how to combine intraoral scanning with other digital data like photography, radiology, and a variety of 3Shape software solutions.Learn More
Patients are requesting treatment options to replace missing or non-restorable teeth that are predictable, minimally invasive and cost effective. The introduction of novel surgical and prosthodontic protocols, exciting new diagnostic technology, cutting edge implant topography and esthetic prosthetic materials have become available to clinicians at a daunting pace, making it increasingly difficult to make sense of all of this rapidly emerging information. Dentists are also concerned about the reality of adverse outcomes and how best to manage them. This day long symposium will focus on important clinically relevant topics from an evidence-based standpoint, presented by dentists who are intimately involved in patient care.
In a physically healthy patient, regeneration of 6 mm of bone buccally and 3 mm of bone vertically is highly predictable. Implant failure rates, including “failing” immobile implants, should be less than 1 percent after 10 years in function. Achieving such results requires expansion of diagnostic protocols, incorporation of more comprehensive treatment modalities, stricter definitions of regenerative and implant success, an evolved understanding of the impact of implant dimensions, composition and configuration on treatment outcomes, and the utilization of only the finest regenerative, implant and restorative materials. The net result is the creation of a more comprehensive patient – treatment dialectic, the maximization of treatment outcomes and the minimization of patient trauma.
This two-day program is designed for experienced surgical and/or restorative clinicians to showcase all the steps involved in the diagnosis, treatment planning, and execution of immediate provisionalization for the Pro Arch Fixed Solution. A combination of live surgeries and hands-on training will expose dentists to this remarkable same day solution for completely edentulous patients and those with a terminal dentition. Surgical and prosthodontic tips and tricks learned over the past two decades will be shared, as well as a discussion on how to best communicate the benefits of this transformative treatment solution to your patients.

The course is designed for dentists who are interested in gaining knowledge with dental implants. It will give the general dentist an overview of implant systems and their applications and will give participants the tools they need for successful diagnosis, treatment planning, implant selection and the process of creating a life like restoration. It will also give dentists an overview of advanced technologies including CAD-CAM and their applications in implant dentistry. The purpose of this course is the development of a better understanding of the use of implants in clinical dentistry regarding identification of implant components for impression taking and restoration fabrication.
The digital revolution in dentistry is progressing rapidly. The translation of digital technologies into the clinical field of implant dentistry has resulted in new treatment modalities at the surgical and restorative level. This three-day course is designed for clinicians and dental teams who wish to efficiently incorporate the digital work flow into their implant practices. This course will focus on the application of digital technologies in surgical and restorative implant dentistry, including digital scanners, cone beam CT scanners and 3D printers, and how the merging of CAD/CAM and CBCT data will culminate in a guided implant surgery technique and digital implant restorative techniques that can ultimately lead to an increased predictability, efficiency, and profitability in dental implant therapy. The time is now to understand how to implement digital implant dentistry into your practice.
Smile Designer®, 3Shape’s simplistic software solution to the smile makeover process, streamlines predictability and wows patient expectations. During this exciting course see firsthand the entire process of digital cosmetic case planning with 3Shape.
This course is designed to introduce both the basic and advanced concepts and principles related to dental and oral implantology. The course will cover several topics, including historical perspectives, implant biomaterials, principles of placement, guided surgery, hard and soft tissue reconstructions, restorative principles, and maintenance. Taught by University of Kentucky College of Dentistry faculty who are experienced and renowned specialists, this course will give participants valuable skills and research-based knowledge to improve and expand their professional practice.
Simultaneous bone augmentation and implant placement is now possible using contemporary bone grafting solutions such as the allograft ring. Develop new skills to perform advanced and complex techniques using this innovative, one-step procedure. Receive training from Dr. Bernhard Giesenhagen, the inventor of the allogenic bone technique, while gaining valuable hands-on experience using an allograft ring product. Participants should be trained in complex bone grafting and implant procedures prior to attending. Priority will be given to surgical specialties.
Presenting dental treatment to patients can be uncomfortable and often quite intimidating yet is absolutely essential for the financial well-being for any dental office. So much is depending on the outcome. Many of us have been put in this role without any formal training or guidance with little or no tools at our disposal. This one day course is designed to provide an environment of education and support for staff members that are asked to present treatment to patients. Best practices will be discussed and considered, as well as ways to develop in-office protocols that will maximize your chances of success.
