Special Oral Implantology Programs

Program Overview

The Pacific Institute for Advanced Dental Education’s Special Programs will provide the clinician with a greater surgical skill set to use in their practice. The full complement of these courses will provide the clinician with knowledge and skills that are over and above what they would find in the CORE and Advanced programs. Dentists will learn about advanced PRF protocols, restorations, and more. Our Advanced Complication Management course is designed to examine extreme cases and to broaden the clinicians options in offering comprehensive treatment, and our Cadaver Course will provide clinicians with the ability to go over anatomy that they may not have looked at since dental school. In addition to the specific clinical procedures, a strong emphasis will be placed on understanding healing complication for all procedures and techniques to successfully manage those complications.

Advanced PRF 1-Day Workshop

Dates and Locations:


Platelet Rich Fibrin is a technology introduced by Dr. Joseph Choukroun and researched by Dr. David Dohan in 2006. Refined protocols such as PRGF (Anitua, E) and L-PRF (Miller, R) have enhanced the technology, each claiming superiority. This has led to misunderstanding and confusion. Current third party research has evaluated and concluded on the advantages and disadvantages of each system.

This program will assist in understanding each protocol and dispel any myths and misconceptions. It will also instruct on proper clinical applications of PRF and introduce you to the most advanced procedures in this field, including “PRF Block” applications (January 2016)

This course provides doctors with the foundation…
