Dental Implant Mini-Residency

This course is focused on teaching clinicians the tools necessary to treat “the ideal” dental implant patient, in their own office. Directed by Dr. Kiarash (Periodontist) and Dr. Behmanesh (Periodontist).

This mini residency offers well balanced surgical and restorative perspectives on:

  1. Case selection

  2. Treatment planning

  3. Surgical placement

  4. Final restoration of dental implants with ideal results for your patients

Course participants will learn the concepts and skills to fabricate a radiographic guide and utilize the latest CBCT technology and 3D imaging software to treatment plan the surgical phase of the procedure based on a restoratively driven treatment approach.

Continued mentorship will be provided for course participants upon completion of the course for up to 1 year.

It is critical for the successful completion of the course that the participant attends all 9 modules of the mini-residency. Effective learning and mentorship hinges on understanding each of the educational building blocks covered in the course to provide successful dental implant therapy for your patients.

Why Should Every General Dentist Attend This Course?

The Soft Tissue Grafting course is designed for clinicians who wish to sharpen and expand their surgical skill set to a more advanced level, as well as for clinicians who simply wish to stay abreast of all the new approaches and current philosophies on soft tissue management during implant site preparation, at time of implant placement, as part of peri-implant maintenance, as well as around exposed roots of natural teeth. 

This advanced surgical hands-on course is centered on our teaching philosophy and approach; to merge evidence based scientific literatures and deliver it in a practical hands-on manner, making it useful and applicable to everyday practice for the general dentist. 

The full spectrum of soft tissue surgical techniques will be discussed and presented, including periodontal plastic surgical procedures. All course participants will be provided the opportunity to perform the hands-on practicum exercises on pig jaws covering all the discussed techniques. Esthetic zone reconstruction as well as soft tissue complications will be addressed.

This course will also include a hands-on soft tissue grafting workshop.

Top Reasons to Attend this Course:

  1. Course is offered by current and former university professors, specialized in the discipline of implant dentistry, who have dedicated their careers to education. Combined they have over 3 decades of specialist knowledge and hands on clinical experiences to share, based on the backbone of evidence-based research in implant dentistry. 

  2. ODQ members will receive a total of 158 Preferred CE credits (Surgical: 92 CE & Prosthetic: 66 CE).

  3. RCDSO members will receive a total of 110 CE credits (Surgical 62 CE & Prosthetic 48 CE).

  4. Meets new RCDSO guidelines & ODQ requirements for practicing implant dentistry.
