Course Description:

This course is designed for the beginner who wants to add socket preservation to their practice. If you want to perform dental implants and would like to offer your patients more than just extractions, this course is for you. Even if you don't do implants, why refer out the extraction and bone graft? This half-day course is designed to cover atraumatic extraction and socket preservation with bone grafting and membrane. This course will give you the experience and materials you need so that you can return to your office and start performing these procedures.

Participants will begin their training with lecture delivered by Dr. Black and Dan Asper. Each participant will perform bone grafts on mannikins provided by ZimVie. The instructional and hands-on foundation includes the basic anatomy and tissue management for simple extraction and socket preservation.

Each attendee will receive a ZimVie Socket Preservation & Regenerative Skillz Kit to try and take back to the office with! Courtesy of ZimVie
