Advanced Dental Implant Seminars
I have been engaged in a series of very advanced seminars in Miami, Fl. on implant surgery, sinus lifts, and bone grafting. I’ve been to Miami 15 times in the last 2 years! A group of us, general dentists and specialists, are being taught by the most respected and well-known implantologist in the U.S. and even the world. Our teachers so far have been from Miami, Virginia, Seattle, Las Vegas, San Diego, and from Germany, and Paris, France.
I was recently honored to be invited to take part on a surgical trip to the Dominican Republic. Twelve of us, plus 5 of these teachers, worked together to place 200 dental implants in 2 days! We worked non-stop from 8 am to 8 pm both days and at the end the count was that we had done 1 million dollars of free dentistry for our patients.
I learned several new techniques for placing implants, and for grafting to create enough bone. I was taught by these world-class clinicians as we worked together on the patients, and in turn I taught some of the less-experienced doctors as they assisted me.
Overall, it was a hard-working, great learning experience for me that will now benefit my own patients here in the Permian Basin.
