Hands-on Live Patient

Dental Implant Surgical & Prosthetic Course

Utilizing Digital Dentistry

Complete Immersion Program

Puebla, Mexico

DATES 2018

February 19 - 25 | May 14 - 20 | August 20 - 26

The purpose of this program is to introduce general dental practitioners to dental implant surgical & restorative principles utilizing digital dentistry in a manner that provides for both didactic and a hands-on clinical experience.

We always start with the final prosthesis in mind to be able to replicate the principal of “restorative driven implant dentistry, with a surgical component” as it is done ideally. After completing this 4-day program, each participant should be able to treatment plan, place and restore an implant in all but the most severe cases.

For most participants, the experience of this program will allow you to return to your respective practices and begin providing predictable implant therapy to your patients after gaining the clinical experience through conducting implant placement on live patients.

The attendees will be communicating with each other and the instructors closely to make sure all principles taught are clear and performed correctly. This allows each practitioner the ability to safely perform the procedure, multiple times, in a controlled environment and provide a realistic experience. This course bridges the gap between classroom lectures and actual surgical treatment in the doctors office back home.

Due to the intensity and distinctiveness of our program, the course instructors will limit attendance to 12 participants.

During this implant boot camp, participants will have access to the instructors for the entire day so they can maximize their learning experience. Activities will include utilizing the CBCT X-ray pre- and post-op for planning, performing, and reviewing their own implant surgeries.

Participants will also observe additional live video feed surgeries performed by the instructor, and then review together as a group.

The primary focus of this program is for each participant to return to his or her office and immediately implement the procedures taught to perform dental implant surgery properly. To ensure this process we offer stateside support for all attendees after returning from the course and we will follow up with all the participants to smooth the transition in their own offices.

“After taking the Implant Immersion Course with hands on in Puebla, Mexico; I am more excited and confident than ever.” “In Mexico, I was able to immediately apply what I learned in lecture with help right by my side.” “Having a CBCT to plan cases and review results was a great way to learn.” “The BAM Center was very clean and comfortable, and the food was awesome!” “The clinical instructors at this course are amazing!” “I would repeat this course in a heartbeat!”
