The experience:

Each attending doctor can expect to have a minimum of 6 patients who will be provided and matched depending on the case difficulty and the attending doctors level of proficiency. It is likely that the dentist can expect to place around 15 implants, however it could be more depending on the cases available. While the intention is to provide experience and guidance in placing implants, attending Dentists may see patients who need anything from a single implant to advanced bone grafting.

While in the Dominican Republic you will be staying at the beautiful Emotions by Hodelpa, Juan Dolio and enjoying their all-inclusive VIP beach front package. There is a wide variety of activities and things to do for all ages and interests. Emotions is family and children friendly and we encourage attending doctors to bring their family along to really make use of this opportunity…
