How can I get certified to restore implants in Ontario?” Did you know that RCDSO outlines a list of requirements, which consists of 49 hours of prosthetic and surgical implant instructions, before you can restore implants!

Back by popular demand, Edropin is inviting Dr. Leung for the third time to host the Ultimate 7 day hands-on Implant Restorative program. This program exceeds all requirements set out by RCDSO and actually hand-holds you through the entire implant restoration process.

About the Program

For this program, we recruited the best faculty such as Dr. Beatrice Leung (board certified prosthodontist and teaching faculty at U of T) to lead the prosthetic portion. And, Dr. Allen Aptekar (diplomate of Americal Board of Oral Implantology) to lead the surgical portion. In addition, we married this great faculty with the incredible teams at BioHorizons and Durban Labs to create a low cost (early bird offer $3500 + HST), in-person 7 days hands-on implant restorative program that gets you certified to restore implants with confidence in Ontario!

There will be delicious meals each day, amazing mentorship, opportunities to meet other clinicians and receive continued support from the entire Edropin team! However, there’s one small catch for this personalized implant restorative course - there are only 35 spots for the Fall 2023 program.

👉 Here is a glimpse of what you will learn:

✅ The smartest way to analyze restorative space.

✅ How to order the right components you need to deliver your implant restoration. (We will show you everything from ordering parts to having extras on hand).

✅ The “secret tips” for open tray and closed tray impressions.

✅ A full hands-on implant placement and suturing lab.

✅ How to maintain the implant restoration and deal with any issues like peri-implantitis.

✅ If you are looking to place implants, this course is a pre-requisite for our implant surgery course coming in 2022.

✅ And, you will meet all RCDSO CE requirements for restoring implants and be confident to start restoring implants right away.

Ready to save your spot? Register today as there are onlye 35 spots total for Fall '23.

Course Reviews From Spring '22 & Fall '22 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks for putting your heart and soul into this course! Appreciate it!

Great instructor- notes and presentation was informative, easy to follow along and thorough. Hands on portion was beyond expectations, I especially appreciate the additional info and effort gone into teaching what the wrong fit is, things that can go wrong and what challenges to expect

Great course, very good sequencing and detailed. Dr Leung is a great lecturer and effective at communicating from the basics

I think the hands-on activity to adjust a “too tight” crown was very useful. Also I appreciated the live demo with the camera zoomed in so everyone could see.

Loved how Dr. Leung organized her material - very easy to follow and build upon what was learnt in previous days. Hands on components complemented the material nicely

I enjoyed all sections of the course including Dr. Leung's. She was detailed, organized, and eager to share her expertise. Being able to apply what we learned in the hands-on portion was also helpful and I feel much more comfortable moving forwards with restoring implants. Thanks to everyone who put this together!
