Dr. Phil Walton earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Toronto. Prior to pursuit of his graduate dental studies, he completed externships at the University of Michigan and overseas at King's College School of Medicine and Dentistry in London, England.
Dr. Walton completed his Master’s degree in Periodontology at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. His practice includes conventional periodontal therapy for tooth maintenance, periodontal plastics as well as advanced regenerative techniques and implant rehabilitation. His current area of focus lies in immediate implant placement and temporization for both single, multiple and full arch reconstruction.
Dr. Walton is a Fellow of the Royal College of Canada and a US Board Certified Diplomate of Periodontics and Implantology. He maintains an affiliation to University of Toronto, and Harvard as a clinical instructor, international research fellow, admissions committee member and active alumnus.
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.

Implant replacement at the highest level must incorporate an understanding of underlying biologic principles. Although the single tooth implants require diligent planning, the partial edentulous predicament poses unique challenges, especially when working in the esthetic zone. An understanding of when, where and how many implants to place in various edentulous permutations to optimize success will be discussed. Key articles that have clinical relevance to maintaining bone levels, papillary presence and the appropriate dimensions implants should be placed in relationship to each other and surrounding natural teeth will be reviewed. A number of cases both successful and so called “less than ideal outcomes” will be analyzed to understand what went right and wrong in an effort to increase predictable desirable results with an emphasis on the role of immediacy. This course is geared to those involved in both the surgical placement or restoration of dental implants.Go to course
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.Go to course
