Live Dental Implant Training

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.


The Alabama Implant Education course is divided into two segments: The Didactic Portion and the Clinical Portion. The Didactic Portion is usually offered in New Orleans, LA & Atlanta,GA. The Clinical Portion includes a mentored clinical session and is held in Birmingham, Alabama. Dentists must be licensed in the United States and have professional liability insurance coverage to participate in clinical exercises.
