ACDE Webinar Series


 Evolving Your Practice with Comprehensive Implant Dentistry: Prosthetic & Surgical Treatment Provided by the Same Hands


Monday, May 1, 2023

8:00 PM-10:00 PM ET


A joint live webinar series

Course Details


The primary goal of this program is to help general dentists find their 'dental implant comfort zone.' We live in a day and age where dental implants have essentially become the standard of care for missing teeth and the more involved and knowledgeable a well-trained general dentist is, the more comprehensive the care they can provide for their patients.


Having the skill set that allows a dentist to treatment plan, surgically place, and prosthetically restore dental implants, puts him/her in a position to truly deliver comprehensive implant care, hence improving the quality of their patients' lives, while elevating the level of their dental practice.


Implant dentistry is, and must always be, treated as a prosthetically driven discipline, so doesn't it make sense the dentist who will be restoring the implants is the best suited to place the implants in the most optimal locations for their future restorations? Remember, dental implants are not placed because our patients have titanium deficiencies, they are placed with the intention to restore our patients to proper form and function.



At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:


  1. Know how to transition your practice into an implant practice.
  2. Know how to select appropriate implant cases.
  3. Know how to properly design implant treatment plans.
  4. Proper site development: conservative extraction and predictable bone grafting techniques.
  5. Surgical techniques for the placement of endosteal implants.
  6. Utilizing implant restorations.
