Introduction to Implant Dentistry. You will be able to place multiple implants into a simulated jaw and get familiar with the Neodent system.

For those thinking about placing implants or learning about the Neodent implant system we have world class clinician Dr. Mike Chen leading you through an all day class. The rational for recommending dental implants to your patients, proper case selection, and determining proper hard and soft tissue requirement will be discussed in the morning. In the afternoon, you will apply what you learned in the morning and place several implants in a typodont jaw. The Neodent implant system has recently been acquired by Struamann and enjoys the support and technology of a world class leading implant company.
