The One-To-One LIVE course provides you and your assistant with a 3-day hands-on dental implant training that will give you skills, protocols, and tools for direct implementation into your office. From a restoratively driven perspective with the patient's end result in focus, you will immerse yourself into all aspects of Fully Guided Surgery as well as Freehand Surgery.
With the advancements in CBCT technology and implant planning software, Precision Fully Guided Surgery now enables clinicians to offer their patients a minimum invasive approach, even in more difficult and complex cases. As this up-to-date technology now is more predictable, affordable, and user friendly Fully Guided Surgery becoming an important tool that will help overcome most common challanges in dental implant therapy - we will teach how to use it.

The patient cases are selected to give you the same real-world experience as you will encounter in your office. This means that this course is not only about placing implants, we will teach you techniques that are key for optimizing treatment outcome for the patients such as connective tissue grafts, PET techniques, osseodensification protocols, crestal sinus bumps, PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin)/ CGF(Concentrated Growth Factors), ridge augmentation and GBR, fabrication of custom tissue formers chair side and much more.

The first two days of the One-To-One LIVE 3 day course starts off with interactive lectures in the mornings followed by hands-on patient treatments in the afternoons where you will implement the knowledge learned. The third course day will be completely dedicated to hands-on implant procedures of various treatment scenarios.

One-To-One LIVE means MORE Surgery

"Private chair" surgery - during the course you and your assitant (recomended but it is optional to bring an assistant) will be treating patients while being coached by a mentoring instructor - this means you will perform ALL surgeries and not swap place with another doctor to assist during parts of the course.

One-To-One LIVE means MORE than just a 3-day course

One To One Matrix

Upon registration our clinical course facilitator will contact you for a One-to-One pre-course consultation where you will get the opportunity to discuss your current skill level and what you expect to get out of the course. Leading up to the inception of the course, you will also be an integral part of the treatment planning process for the patients that you will be treating during the 3-days. After the course you will be specially invited to the Implant Know-How Alumni forum where you can post cases, discuss and ask questions to fellow alumnis and instructors.

We also aknowledge the fact that for some, it may be difficult to get going when back in the office again. Therefore we encourage you to bring a case that you intend to perform in your office after the course to discuss and we will help you assertain the right course of treatment. Should you need more personal support when it's time for the surgery in your office - we'll have your back.

In addition you will also be specially invited to the Implant Know-How Alumni forum where you can post cases, discuss and ask questions to fellow alumnis and instructors.

An active unrestricted Dental License in the state where you are attending the course is required for attendees to be able to actively participate in surgical procedures.
