Restoratively Driven Workshops in Implant Dentistry
Restoratively Driven Workshops in Implant Dentistry is a 4 session hands-on, interactive educational series. Each session is designed to enable doctors to incorporate restorative implant dentistry into their practice. We have limited the course to a select group of doctors to ensure a small group learning environment, where doctors can receive hands-on sessions that allow them to incorporate new skills into their practice. The course meets once a month and runs September 2018 – January 2019 at varies venues in the city.
