We offer a comprehensive education program in all disciplines of implant dentistry with the latest technology available.
This ITI Education Week, held at Harvard University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, has been designed for clinicians with experience in the field of implant dentistry. The program focuses on comprehensive treatment planning in the form of cases that will be presented, discussed and applied on simulation models. This five-day course includes lectures, live surgeries, live prosthetics, workshops and hands-on sessions. It also includes useful translational research information that has a direct impact on clinical applications, underscoring the evidence-based treatment concepts the school applies.
Utilizing a combination of interactive discussion, observation of live surgery and immediate full arch fixed conversions, hands-on exercises, and lecture materials, this comprehensive two-day course demonstrates an effective team approach. To help both your patients, and your practice.
The treatment of complete and single arch edentulism remains a significant priority for dental clinicians. With an aging population and advances in medicine, more patients with complex medical and dental needs, inclusive of edentulism, will seek care. This program will address the physical complexities of edentulism and requirements of a comprehensive pre-treatment analysis that will focus on providing the surgical and restorative options for our patients. The incorporation of digital technologies that assist in the acquisition of patient data and software for planning the dental implants will be covered in detail. Various guided technologies used in the placement of dental implants along with the use of pre-fabricated interim restorations will be highlighted based on indications, pros and cons of use. Restorative procedures including; treatment steps, prosthesis design, abutment and material selection will be covered. Recall and maintenance procedures for these patients will be introduced with regards to frequency and procedures. The hands-on component will offer the participants an experience with CBCT guided implant placement in a simulated edentulous arch followed by abutment selection and denture conversion utilizing an immediate loading protocol. This 2-day course offers a great opportunity for networking and collaboration between members of the entire treatment team. Sign-up today and join us for valuable information packed with practical pearls that you and your patients can benefit from
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 rehabilitation of the terminal dentition or completely edentulous arch with dental implants and a fixed solution has become a focal point in today’s implant practice. With patient awareness increasing from radio, TV and social media; prompting them to seek treatment, clinicians find themselves faced with the need to offer these services. In addition, evidence-based treatment protocols promote the social, functional and esthetic benefits of dental implant supported restorations, and with the increased integration of digital technology, this process has become streamlined for the treatment team. With the complexity that is often faced in these clinical situations (bone reduction, implant positioning, template design and fabrication, abutment selection, provisional fabrication and indexing), technology that is currently available, run by an extended member of the treatment team allows for these steps to be preplanned and fabricated to ease the burden on the surgeon and restorative dentist at the time of surgery. This two-day course will focus on the technology utilized to plan and order (“smile in a box”) CBCT guided templates and provisional restorations for treatment of the full-arch patient. Participants will be given presentations that demonstrate the step-wise patient evaluation and planning process followed by hands-on sessions executing the principles taught. Participants will also experience the use of the co-DiagnostiX software to import a DICOM file and merge it with a dual scan prosthesis. In addition, techniques to segment, plan implant placement and abutment selection will be covered. On a patient simulated model, the participant will use CBCT-generated stackable templates in the placement of four dental implants followed by abutment placement and indexing of a pre-fabricated interim restoration. All course participants will keep the hands-on model as a valuable patient education tool to be used in their practice.

In today's competitive marketplace referrals are being pulled in many directions. How you differentiate your practice among your referrals is critical to building a sustainable partnership. __C.O.R.E.2 - Foundations__ is a strategic approach focused on building a high performing team poised to deliver comprehensive patient care, service excellence and practice growth. A highlight of this program features valuable action planning tools, organized work flows and communication plans geared to develop leaders at all levels on the dental team. While this program is designed to elevate the skill sets of the implant coordinator, treatment coordinator and professional relationships director, all team members are encouraged to attend.
Successful implant therapy involves a delicate balance between soft tissue, hard tissue, and an aesthetic and functional prosthetic component. This course will look at each of the following aspects for the provision of dental implants for your patients from the unique perspectives of periodontics, oral surgery and prosthodontics. This course includes traditional lectures covering the didactic materials, as well as a treatment planning session. The course hours include 35 hours of prosthetic instruction and 14 hours of surgical instruction.
While bone regenerative techniques to afford the clinician the opportunity to attain previously undreamt of treatment outcomes, specific protocols must be followed to ensure maximization of therapeutic results with minimization of patient morbidity. Through a combination of observation of six live surgeries, extensive lecture material, roundtable discussion, and hands-on exercises with fresh human cadavers, course participants will become well versed in the indications, contraindications, and execution of all augmentation treatment options.
Today’s dental consumer demands high value and expects service excellence. These demands impact your everyday clinical practice. How you respond and how you make people feel are vital elements to building relationships necessary to differentiate your practice from the competition. New advances in technology are providing patients with immediate solutions for tooth replacement. Alignment between the specialty practice and restorative team is essential to the patient journey and experience. Micro-influencers are emerging as leaders in the team approach to implant dentistry. The most recent develop in the micro-influencer community is the role of the professional relations director. This role emphasizes a strategic approach to service excellence, professional sales and practice growth. A highlight of this program will provide proven strategies and tools for success in growing the implant practice.
