This Preceptorship consists of an annual review and updated curriculum that is clinically focused while incorporating the latest research from the clinical basic sciences. This will provide the participant with an understanding of the rationale and scientific basis for the clinical practice of implantology.
The participants will meet for five weekend sessions which will include didactic sessions and some hands-on training experiences in an interactive learning environment.
The participant will learn:
• The rationale and scientific basis for the successful clinical practice of implantology.
• The current concepts, principles, and clinical methodology used effectively in practice.
• The proper evaluation, diagnosis, and selection of patients for implant placement and restoration.
• To develop specific implant, surgical and prosthodontic skills, and the different modalities.
• To manage difficult clinical situations, such as patients with advanced maxillary or mandibular atrophy.
• The practice management aspects of dental implantology: records, insurance, informed consent, medical-legal and marketing considerations.
