2 DAY WORKSHOPS

S.M.I.L.E. TECHNIQUE DENTAL IMPLANT
2017 Dates TBA

PERIODONTAL MICROSURGERY
2017 Dates TBA

S.M.I.L.E. TECHNIQUE DENTAL IMPLANT WORKSHOP

Dennis Shanelec, DDS and Co-instructor Adriana McGregor, DDS

COURSE DATES: 2017 Dates TBA

DENTAL IMPLANT DRILLING EXTRACTION SITE TECHNIQUE
The course emphasizes developing clinical drilling skills, especially in extraction sites. Accurate osteotomy drilling is practiced for immediate placement in the maxillary esthetic zone and socket site drilling is done for every maxillary tooth. Each student fabricates an immediate screw retained provisional and custom impression coping for a maxillary central incisor utilizing light cured composite. Doctors improve surgical skills and dexterity through practicing the principles of implant microsurgery.

The Curriculum
Demonstration and direct instruction guides each student. The two day course provides four hours of live patient demonstration, four hours of lecture and eight hours of supervised practice. Implant techniques are taught through live video and individual instruction. Anatomical bone and soft tissue models accurately simulate clinical implant microsurgery. The exercises include osteotomy preparations, trouble shooting complications, implant position correction through lateral drilling, and immediate provisional fabrication.

About The Class
Instrumentation is provided for Straumann and NobelBiocare systems. MTI implant Gauges and Shanelec lateral drills are also used. Doctors have undivided use of a set of implant instruments, an implant drilling unit, and a surgical microscope. The highlight of each course is a live microsurgical demonstration in HD Video of the S.M.I.L.E. Technique immediate implant placement in a maxillary anterior extraction site with socket gap graft, screw retained provisional and buccal soft tissue graft.

COURSE TUITION: $6800
Pre-registration deposit of $2000 is required with the remainder due six weeks in advance of each course. Deposit is non-refundable. Remit fees in U.S. funds by check or credit card to: Microsurgery Training Institute

PERIODONTAL MICROSURGERY WORKSHOP

Adriana McGregor, DDS and Co-instructor J. David Cross, DDS

COURSE DATES:2017 Dates TBA

BASIC PRINCIPLES OF PERIODONTAL MICROSURGERY
The course has practical and theoretical value with primary emphasis on developing the clinical skills which comprise good microsurgical technique. Extensive microscope practice focuses on improving manual surgical dexterity and understanding principles of microsurgery as they apply to periodontics.

The Curriculum
Direct instruction guides each participant's progress to advanced levels. Courses run from Saturday through Sunday with three hours of lecture and fourteen hours of supervised practice. Classical microsurgical techniques are taught through digital and live video and individualized one-on-one instruction. Polymeric anatomical models simulate periodontal microsurgery. Their design duplicates the handling properties of natural gingival tissue. Exercises comprise incision, disection and closure of linear and three dimensional mucosal wounds. This includes a GTR or connective tissue graft.

About The Class
Titanium instruments of the finest quality are provided and maintained to high tolerance. Microsutures with clinical grade needles are supplied. Throughout the course, participants have the undivided use of a set of microsurgical instruments and a surgical microscope. To insure maximum learning and individual instruction, course attendance capacity is limited. The curriculum follows the recommended guidelines of the Society of Microsurgical Specialists.

COURSE TUITION: $5000
Pre-registration deposit of $1500 is required with the remainder due six weeks in advance of each course. Deposit is non-refundable. Remit fees in U.S. funds by check or credit card to: Microsurgery Training Institute
