This course provides 13 hands-on sessions including models and fresh frozen cadaver specimens. Lecture material covers patient examination and treatment planning in great detail. Surgical instrumentation and techniques include suturing finesse, guide utilization, anatomy, radiology, flap manipulations, and implant placement in all areas of the mouth. Tissue and bone management is emphasized in an approachable and usable manner. By the week’s end, participants prepare and place over 25 implants in many different model and cadaver procedures.

The last day is an advanced course using additional implants, drilling equipment, trephines, bone mill, bone scrapers and simulated bone graft materials. This adds additional hands-on experience and aids in overcoming surgical hesitance. This final day may be taken as a separate course for those with extensive surgery backgrounds.

The excitement of this course carries conversations right through the activities and breaks.

What’s Included

Breakfast, lunch, gourmet breaks, 13 hands-on sessions, two days of working on cadaver specimens, and supplies. The participant will need to bring only a surgical instrument kit (or may purchase one from Hartzell Instruments at special school pricing), and loupes or safety glasses.

Extras

Student pricing on surgical instruments available.
