This course centres around live patient care and mentored surgical experiences. For the student, this means real patients, real surgery and real education. This curriculum rewards hard work and supports students with high levels of personal attention. Small classes ensure plenty of interaction with faculty. Our graduates place implants successfully in their practices.VIEW COURSE DETAILS
We do 20-24 surgeries per day, with 10 to 12 in the morning and 10 to 12 in the afternoon (except on Saturdays). Doctor’s assist each other chair-side where they learn by watching and offering assistance in this hands-on dental implant training.
Daily, we review and discuss the surgeries from the previous day and prepare for surgeries in the following morning session. Clinicians are always enthusiastic and excited to see themselves and their peers successfully place implants. These surgeries offer valuable points for discussion and review, all performed in a residency seminar-type format
If you elect not to come to our clinic, you can have us come to YOU! We will do an "IN YOUR OFFICE" hands-on implant training. It offers 1-on-1 Surgical Experience, instead of at the Foundry Dental Center for your course requirement.
While many courses for learning implant dentistry are available, hardly any hands-on dental implant course is so comprehensive in scope. Alabama Implant Education is committed to providing quality education with University-based lecturers. Our goal is to effectively train dentists in the appropriate use of dental implants, so that patients may be well served with this state-of-the-art technology.

The students understand the procedure first. Later on, they implement it step-by-step by using this practical knowledge.
Instant and valuable feedback from specialists during the practice makes it more effective. It gives a better edge to the quality of service being delivered by dentists in real-life cases.
Experience can only come from more and more practice. Live training offers opportunities to gain experience. However, it goes a step ahead by giving valuable feedback on correcting the approach. Learning from the mistake, clarifying doubts and queries lead towards expertise.
