PART I: Didactic and Hands-On Model-Based Training
This is a solid foundation course taught by Board-certified specialists aimed primiarly at those who have placed between zero to 60 implants. For those already conducting implant procedures, this course still has lots of benefits to fill in your knowledge gaps and hone your skills.
PART II: Surgical / Clinical Implant Placement (Optional)
Upon successful completion of Part I of the Continuum, participants have the option of performing up to two surgical implant placements on their patient after approval from one of the Course Directors. These sessions will be instructed by a CDM faculty member in a one-to-one clinical setting. Prior to performing the implant placement, all Part II participants must first observe two implant procedures in the CDM clinic. Participants may also opt for observation only. These sessions are customized to each participant's schedule within clinic hours. Additional course fees will apply. Click here for further information.
This course meets the continuing education requirements for the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI)’s Fellowship Credential and contributes to the maintenance requirements for ICOI Fellowship, IPS Mastership and ICOI Diplomate Credentials.
