Why Choose Us?

  • Led by expert faculty members with over 10 years of dental implant experience.

  • Place implants as part of your training on your own patients.

  • No hidden fees. The tuition covers all supplies and materials for the course.

  • This is an AGD approved program. Successful completion of the course qualifies you to offer dental implants in Ontario.

Objective of the Course

This internationally recognized and AGD/RCDSO-approved course will guide you through a comprehensive surgical and restorative protocol. In addition to developing these surgical skills, participants will also learn how to:

  1. Treatment plan and case-selection for success 

  2. CBCT interpretation 

  3. Surgical flaps and suturing

  4. Socket preservation techniques

  5. Implant placement

  6. Implant restoration 

  7. Implant occlusion

  8. Implant complications and their management

  9. How to communicate with patients to increase case acceptance

  10. Dental photography

  11. How to optimize marketing strategies for practice growth

Being mindful of emerging technologies to assist modern dental clinics to operate more efficiently, participants will have the opportunity to learn both the conventional workflow as well as a digital workflow to provide quality care for patients.

Course Overview

The course will cover digital and conventional implant placement and each participant will experience both surgical and restorative procedures using both digital and conventional methodologies.

Successful completion of this course will give participants all required CE points to meet the RCDSO requirements for placing and restoring implants.

This course is intended for dentists who have never placed implants, who would like to gain more hands on knowledge of implants, and those who would like to learn more about digital workflow with implant placement and restoration.

Who is this course for?

This AGD/RCDSO-approved program is aimed at clinicians who are: 

  • Are new to implant dentistry and want to incorporate implant dentistry into their practice

  • Have a thorough understanding of implant therapy but would like to review their clinical knowledge and obtain more supervised, hands-on experience in both simulation settings and live patients

  • Seasoned practitioners in implant dentistry who would like to expand their practice with using a digital workflow to increase efficiency and decrease treatment cost for patients

Dr. Richard Miron

Dr. Richard Miron is currently an affiliated Professor in the department of Periodontology at the University of Bern in Switzerland where he performed his PhD. He also serves as a visiting professor in 3 dental schools including in Wuhan, China (Oral Implantology) UIC in Barcelona, Spain (Oral Surgery), and previously as an Adjunct Professor at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. From 2015-2016, he served as the head of the Oral Biology Laboratory at one of the highest ranking dental school’s in the world (University of Bern, Switzerland) under Chairs Professor Anton Sculean (Periodontology) and Daniel Buser (Oral Surgery). He completed his undergraduate degree and Masters in Cell Biology at the University of Western Ontario in Canada, a PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology and a dr. med. dent. thesis at the University of Bern, Switzerland, and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Laval, Canada. He has currently published over 150 peer-reviewed articles in the top ranking dental and biomaterials journals and is the primary editor of two textbooks.

His main research interests involve the use of growth factors used for bone and periodontal regeneration, osteoinductive bone grafting materials; collagen barrier membranes and guided bone regeneration in implant dentistry. Dr. Miron is widely considered one of the top young investigators in the field of implant dentistry having recently been awarded many internationally recognized prizes including the International Team for Implantology (ITI) Andre Schroeder Prize (2016), the International Association of Dental Research (IADR) Young Investigator of the Year in the field of Implant Dentistry (2015), the Canadian IADR Hatton Award recipient (2015), and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry Young Investigator Grant Award (2014).

Dr. Miron and Dr. Joseph Choukroun recently edited a 15 chapter textbook titled: “Platelet Rich Fibrin in Regenerative Dentistry: Biological Background and Clinical Indications” gathering collaborations from 20 co-authors from around the globe. Furthermore, a second textbook titled: “Next Generation Biomaterials for Bone and Periodontal Biomaterials” is currently underway in collaboration with Dr. Yufeng Zhang. Together they have formed one of the strongest regenerative labs in the dental field focused on the development of new biomaterials utilized in dentistry introduced to the markets in North America, Europe and Asia.
