Implantology Supporting Your Practice

View from the Chairside: Should I get into implants and Where to begin?

Today, Dr. Mike Racich returns with another presentation. This time, he’s taking focus on two implant-related questions that are frequently asked by dentists contemplating the addition of implants to their practice:

  1. What course or institutes would you recommend?
  2. What implant system should I consider purchasing?

    Interesting talk by Dr Racich and I agree with all that he described insofar as observing surgeries and prosthetic rehabilitation and going to the conferences given by the Implant Societies he identified. However, one must be familiar with the Guidelines for implant dentistry education mandated by your Provincial Dental College which in Ontario for example has specific hours of education that must be taken in various categories such as basic bone biology, diagnosis and treatment planning, distinguishing between simple and complex cases, as well as surgical and restorative techniques. There are didactic and hands-on workshop component requirements as well. There are courses in Toronto that cover all the RCDSO guidelines which are excellent i.e. Genesis CDE, PACE, University of Toronto CDE. Check with your own Provincial College if they require continuing education hours relative to implant dentistry.
