“DISC is powered by Knowledge Factory”
The Denver Implant Study Club (D.I.S.C) was developed by Dr. Aldo Leopardi, prosthodontist and is produced and powered by The Knowledge Factory. Introduced in February of 2003, it is an ongoing comprehensive study club directed towards the restorative treatment of dental implants.
“Developed by a professional, for professionals…”
This professional study club is unlike any other. The format is a series of lectures with extensive hands-on real world experiences that work with actual clinical scenarios applicable to the majority of dental implant systems available. The study club is prosthodontically driven and directed towards the general dentist. The main objective is to empower doctors and their offices while developing the highest level of medical care, techniques and implant practices.
Continuing Education Credits Offered
Several short comprehensive evening sessions will be offered throughout the year. Continuing education credits (2.5 hours per meeting) are available. Fees are waived due to corporate sponsorship. The venue is the Metropolitan Denver Dental Society (MDDS) building: 3690 S. Yosemite St., Denver, CO 80237.
Dinner: A complimentary light dinner will be provided at 5:30 PM. Lecture begins at 6:00 PM.
