Course Description: This study club is designed for practitioners who have extensive experience placing and restoring dental implants. It is formally a ‘by invitation only’ group but now, participation is open for those whose applications are accepted. Each session will be directed at the advanced practitioner level.
October 25, 2019 This course is for you and your staff and will help refine the front office and clinical support your team is able to provide your implant practice. This course will help you streamline and fine-tune your full practice approach!
The day will include an all-day session by Tom Limoli for dentists and front office staff on advanced dental coding for general, periodontal and implant surgical procedures. During the afternoon session, the focus will be on documentation strategies relevant to successful claims: AKA a deep dive into billing for implant placement and restoration.
A special session will be held with Linda Geyer for assistants during the morning that will cover sterile technique and infection control (assistants will join Limoli’s documentation session in the afternoon).
November 15, 2019: Dr. Andrew Peterson will explore clinical considerations, challenges and interventions for the soft tissue around implants. You will learn the principals and different techniques for soft tissue grafting (around teeth and implants) and clinical benefits of soft tissue augmentation with an evidence-based approach. In addition to soft tissue, a discussion of implant complications and management of peri-implant diseases will be discussed. The second half of the course will be a group discussion with case presentations from the participants. This course includes a one on one 45-minute zoom session with Dr. Peterson about and in advance of participants case presentations.
January 31, 2020: Dr. James Rutkowski will review relevant pharmacology, grafting materials and blood products. Participants will be invited to submit specific questions in advance of this interactive, live webcasted session. Dr. Rutkowski’s extensive practical experience will blow your mind! He has been invited back to speak for this study club every few years by popular demand!
April 24, 2020: Dr. Daniel Petrisor will speak on ridge augmentation in the mandible specifically around the mental foramen. You will learn fine dissection techniques in this area and how to graft effectively while avoiding injury to the mental nerve. Dr. Petrisor will also provide an update on grafting materials like bone products that are truly osteoinductive. He will review osteoconductivifty and discuss specific osteocel type products. This hands-on session will help dispel contradictory information around these topics and bring your practice up to date with the latest techniques.
