Course description: When compared with conventional fixed or removable prosthetic options for tooth replacement, implant therapy is a biologically conservative treatment approach with the potential for achieving rewarding treatment outcomes for both the patient and dentist.  In order to accomplish consistent and predictable dental implant treatment outcomes in general practice, an understanding of the fundamental principles of implant biomechanics, prosthetic, surgical and treatment planning considerations is required.  Dr. Leopardi and Dr. Bortolussi’s  objective for the residency program is to bring all of these factors into perspective, through an understanding of the current literature and how this relates to clinical practice.

The Restorative Implant Residency Program is a comprehensive approach to Dental Implant Continuing Education utilizing the Team Approach.  It is a two and a half day hands-on lecture series.  The main objective is to empower participating doctors to build their implant practices.  This hands-on approach allows for real-world experience with implant components and clinical techniques.  The participants will obtain 16 continuing education credits upon their completion of the course.

At the end of the 21/2 days the participants will have a thorough understanding of the following topics:

  • Introduction, Biomechanical and Treatment Planning Considerations, with Hands-On Component.
  • Treatment Planning – discussion of patient cases participants bring to the program.
  • Fixed Restorative Considerations in Implant Dentistry, with Hands-On Component.
