course overview

This intensive 3-day evidence-based foundation program has been convened by Adjunct Associate Professor Richard Chan since 1994. It has introduced over 1000 general practitioners as well as specialist clinicians to implant dentistry. This program is now structured to introduce the clinician to the surgical and prosthodontic aspects of implant therapy through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on workshops. The focus will be on the surgical and prosthodontic management of healed single tooth sites.
Under supervision by highly experienced implant surgeons and prosthodontists, participants will place and restore implants in soft tissue bone models in a simulated clinical environment with manikins and custom-made surgical guides using the full range of implant equipment and instrumentation. It will give the clinician insight into the surgical and restorative requirements and difficulties in each field. This better understanding serves to promote improved coordination and respect between the various team members leading ultimately to a more predictable clinical outcome.
Course objectives
On completion of the program, the participant will be familiar with the components and techniques necessary to complete the surgical and prosthodontic phases of single tooth implant cases in healed sites.
