“The Role of the Doctor and Team in the Implant Practice”

Friday, June 7, 2018

TImplants are really just one third of the triad for the most successful combination to skyrocket any practice in the country. Oral sedation and atraumatic extractions comprise the other cornerstones.

During this program practitioners will understand:
• The Team: What’s in this for you? More than you think
• Establishing a relationship based practice: what role does the team have?
• The Art of Case Presentation: every step from the first phone call
• Earning more while seeing less patients
• The clinic’s role in the implant practice: the bar just got higher
• Why it is both necessary and ethical to get paid up front
• The best word of mouth program for attracting out of network patients
• Marketing do’s and don’ts for the oral sedation/implant practice
• Becoming an integral part of your community



Saturday & Sunday | June 8 & 9, 2019

“The importance of the Atraumatic Extraction in Preparation for Implant Placement”

The atraumatic extraction results in the most opportune conditions for implant placement. We will discuss approaches for cuspids, maxillary molars, mandibular molars, and teeth adjacent to delicate crown and bridge. Recommended armamentarium, flap designs, bone grafting, and suturing techniques will be covered.

Medical contraindications and potential complications will be considered. We will also cover a foolproof route to painless injections, and a powerful and predictable enteral sedation protocol that will allow you to treat even the most fearful patients.

During this program practitioners will understand:
• Terminology of implant and prosthetic parts
• Bone divisions
• Single root form implants
• Biology of osseous integration
• Sterilization vs. clean technique
• Flap or flapless
• Guided vs. direct vision/ freehand: when to use what
• Treating the esthetic zone
• Immediate or delayed placement
• Treatment planning the edentulous mandible or maxilla
• Bone grafting: understanding osteoconductive and osteoinductive; the five-wall socket; which grafting materials and membranes to use when

“Hands-on Extractions, Grafting, and Implant Placement”

A brief review of the Day 2 topics will be followed by hands on exercises on a variety of very lifelike models and possibly pig jaws.

During this program practitioners will:
• Incision design
• Atraumatic Extractions of real teeth in models
