Simple and Complex Implant Restorations: (All Day Course)
For many clinicians and their patients, dental implants are quickly becoming the preferred treatment of choice for tooth replacement. As the paradigm continues to shift with implants becoming the standard of care, there is more demand for not only functional, but esthetic treatment outcomes. This course will discuss the role of interdisciplinary treatment planning for predictable, stable results. The importance of simplicity and reliability for successful long-term outcomes will also be presented. A comprehensive review of implant treatment planning, both analog and digital will be provided, so you can understand how to achieve predictable restoration of teeth, even when treating patients with compromised periodontal or orthodontic situations.

Eyes, It’s Not Just About Dentistry. Do you really know your patients? (PM Course)
Do they know you? In the life cycle of a patient, it’s not just about how many clicks in the computer or how many restorations you have done. What it is about is how many real conversations you have had, the personal care and the customized touch. Let’s take customer service to a whole new level by learning who your target audience is, what they expect and what they see. A patient’s positive perception is your success. It’s time to put on different glasses and see things in a new perspective!
