“A great way to grow one’s practice and help many patients is to learn to offer implants as treatment modality. PI is the best place for a dentist to learn surgical placement and restoration of dental implants. This is important as the cases are planned around the restoration, not the other way around. You cannot miss.”

Dentists are encouraged to bring one patient each and should expect to incur the costs of materials used. Should a dentist like to bring an additional patient, the additional charge is $2000. Should a dentist need a patient supplied, we can attempt to supply one for you, however this will depend on availability of patients and can not be guaranteed, please speak to a representative for more information.

Wow! What a great teacher! I never knew surgeries could be this clean and precise! Incredible information!
Dr. BC Nelson, DDSStayton, OR
Very good intro for a DDS considering whether he/she wants to get involved in implantology. Helps those new to the field as well as helps consolidate knowledge for those already active in the field.
