Speaker: Robert J. Buhite, DDS
This course is recommended for everyone.
Clinical and administrative assessments of one’s self, the dental practice team, as well as the practice’s direction should be undertaken to begin and be successful in implant dentistry. Financial commitments when limiting one’s self to implant restorative procedures compared to those for surgery and restorative procedures differ significantly.
Doctors and staff will gain an insight into basic diagnoses, treatment planning, attitude and philosophy to be successful, because implant dentistry is not a program, not a discipline, it is a journey.
- Criteria for patient selection
- Office personnel requirements
- How 2-D radiography can be adequate
- Patient maintenance in office and home
- Office design, equipment and instruments
