Implant Theory & Tx Planning

This course is the didactic foundation that you should have gotten in dental school but didn’t. It sets the stage for all future growth. We cover a little bit of history, implant design, key terms and concepts (like platform switching and osseointegration). Lastly, we provide a systematic treatment planning flow that will allow you to quickly work up patients and find the right cases. This course will give you a confident understanding of implantology.
