Course Structure

This is a 2-day course. It is held in Birmingham at the Foundry Dental Center. The first day is primarily didactic, with instruction on how to manage the guide planning software, as well as general treatment planning discussions. Hands-on exercies are done to familiarize clinicians with the guided kit and techniques. Surgical cases will be reviewed for the next day. On the surgical day, course delegates place implants with guides. Clinicians can expect to place 1-2 implants, and assist while their colleagues do additional surgery. This will prepare most clinicans for guided surgery techniques in your own office.
