Course Synopsis

Presenter: Raymond Choi, DDS

As the largest segment of our population ages, general dentists will need to meet the challenge of treating older, medically compromised patients. This course will cover practical implant and restorative strategies appropriate for older patients, including proper assessment and treatment planning. Attendees will participate in model-based, hands-on exercises to learn simplified implant protocols so that they leave the course with solid fundamentals for treating older patients more confidently. Additionally, the implant and restorative procedures taught in this course can easily be incorporated into any general practice for increased efficiency and profitability.
