Hands On Implant Placement - With Live Patients Surgeries



 
10th Year Offered!

November 3-8, 2013
Limited to 8 participants! 

 


New This Course: Assistant Training!

The course fee includes admission of one assistant into our Assistant Implant Training Course. An additional assistant can be added for $500 (limit two assistants).


Course Overview

The purpose of this course is to provide those who have already completed an intense course of didactic study of implant dentistry (e.g. a maxi-course, ICOI or AAID-sponsored course, Misch Institute courses) to further build on that knowledge and gain the clinical experience by conducting live patient surgeries. This allows the practitioner/participant the ability to safely perform the procedures in a controlled environment and provide an experience that other courses do not provide. This course bridges the gap between classroom and actual surgical treatment. To maximize this opportunity, the course director will allow 6 patient surgeries with a minimum of twelve implants placed. Due to the intensity and uniqueness of this course, the course directors will limit attendance to 8 participants. Similar intense hands on courses are also available for sinus lift surgery and advanced implant placement.

Testimonials

Dr. Robert Goldtrap – “…Dr. Pruett has put on by far the best CE course I have taken over the last 10 years.  Dr. Pruett with a selfless attitude structured the course in such a way that all participants felt that they had succeeded in learning but also comprehending the concepts of implant dentistry and IV sedation…I must also recognize Dr. Martone.  The wealth of knowledge that she possesses cannot be taken for granted.  I can say that my life is better having had the opportunity to study and work with them.”

Dr. Joseph Bonkowski - “I highly recommend GHSU Hands on Implant Course.  Dr. Pruett and his team give an in depth course that get you ready to place implants in a very short time….. It has changed our practice so much….Other General dentist have actually referred to our office…What a fantastic experience, one of the best programs in my 29 years of practice without a doubt.”

Dr. Ruth D’Arco – “I took the Maxi course in Atlanta for one year.  I still did not feel comfortable with the knowledge because I lacked the hands on training that I needed to feel confident.  The implant course gave me just that.  I was given the opportunity to place over 20 implants in 3 days and walked away with skill and information that I was able to apply immediately in my practice.  Thank you Dr. Pruett and team for helping me grow my dental practice… I will be forever grateful.”

Dr. Guy Rosenstiel – “I want to thank Dr. Pruett for his fabulously effective professional method ….His gift of teaching implant surgery, mentoring me chair side during his course, and helping me after the course has forever improved not only my patients satisfaction, but also my personal enjoyment of my career”

Dr. Larry D. Gould – “Thank You – for your expertise and help…Dr. Pruett sure makes the course fun, but the benefits I’ve gained from this course is beyond words.  Again, thank you for your help and friendship.”
