Today more than ever, the entire dental team needs to understand the options patients have concerning dental implants. Patients are more informed now than ever before, and require excellent results. Most dentists only restore single implants and are not fully confident in the options for patients that need multiple implants. This program will discuss the systems that can be implemented immediately that help to properly plan and present implants to patients. It will discuss how to handle everything from questions patients ask over the phone to questions your patients have before, during, and after treatment. How do restoring doctors become the “quarterback” and driving force to create a restorative-driven treatment plan that surgeons can follow? After completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Train your entire dental team to prepare for dental implant restorations
- Present implants to patients that turn “No” into “Yes!”
- Perform needs analysis (Fixed vs. Removable)
- Determine when to immediate load patients
- Make surgical guides and CT scans work for you
- Incorporate a dental lab into your Team
Understand new lab technology that is moving faster than ever!
