CIRP is a year-long dental surgical training course for gaining expertise in advanced implants. It is intended for those dentists who want to focus on implant dentistry in their practice. Our delegates regularly place 20-30 implants in a single day. These cases are discussed and reviewed in a study-club-style environment. The course offers an unparalleled learning experience for those wanting an elite implant education program.  

One Year for Gaining Insights and Skills
During the course duration of a year, various advanced implant topics are covered. The structure and design, of course, help clinicians with a significant focus on implant dentistry to gain valuable insights.  As the course progresses, residents learn critical skills to perform successful implant procedures. These include ridge width grafting, sinus elevation, and immediate implant placement in aesthetic areas. The didactic education, clinical application, followed by case review form the steps towards achieving excellence in delivering dental implant procedures.  

In our Comprehensive Implant Residency Program we operate every session.* Patients are provided for these experiences and you will follow the patients post-operatively. It is common for our delegates to place 20-30 implants in a day. Delegates then review and discuss their cases in a study club environment. This completes the learning loop and provides an unparalleled learning experience.

To say this was a good course, even the best course I have taken, wouldn’t be saying enough. It has changed my life. I was burned out on dentistry and really needed a fresh charge. You guys gave it to me. Truly one of the best things I have ever done. Can’t thank you enough!

The course was really great. The hands on experience the course offers is hands down the best that I have heard of. There’s not much more I could really ask for I loved it. Sorry if I don’t have anything negative to say to help but I don’t. Thank you again.

This course was the most rewarding thing I have done in my 29 years of dentistry. The lecture weekend was informative and detailed. I feel I received a great deal of foundational data to cultivate my diagnostic and treatment planning for implants.  The surgical weekend clearly was my favorite. The opportunity to provide for and treat several patients with varying needs was helpful. Having the instructors and residents there to help us and guide our treatment during each procedure was comforting. We were able to lay a foundation for our implant journey with very little stress. Again, this clearly was the best and most rewarding course I have ever attended.  Thank you to the entire team at AIE.

I can’t speak higher about the course. The material, people and experience was fantastic. The most rewarding aspect was being able to work hands-on in live surgery and put didactics into practice. I will recommend to everyone I can! And hopefully complete CIRP someday! Thank you!
