Comprehensive Implant Lecture with Hands-On
This course is a 1-day didactic program designed for dental professionals that would like to enhance their clinical understanding and medical management of the dental implant patient. Primary goal is to assist each participant in achieving a higher level of clinical comprehension with simple and surgical extraction of teeth, design and manipulation of surgical flaps, socket grafts, membrane techniques, placement of dental implant fixtures, and proper suture techniques.
