Why Should Every 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.
