Course Description

Welcome to the Clinical Implantology from A to Z program.  We are proud to offer the first actively comprehensive course consisting of 10 individual modules designed to address every aspect of implant dentistry. Gain invaluable experience and confidence with hands-on practice and live surgical training, where you can learn from our highly skilled faculty members and gain an in-depth insight into implantology, elevating your surgical and clinical skills to the next level.

The entire course runs from September, 2021 through June, 2022 at the Washington Academy of General Dentistry in Seattle, WA. Each in-house module will be 3 days per month, and participants will learn and practice implant dentistry through 300 CE hours.

For each module, Day 1 (Friday) is reserved for a didactic seminar, administered by either Dr. Yassin or an esteemed guest speaker. The morning of Day 2 (Saturday) will facilitate hands-on practice with either models or pig jaws; the afternoon offers participants the chance to observe a live patient surgery, performed by Dr. Yassin. Day 3 (Sunday) is reserved for participants performing live patient surgeries with Dr. Yassin (one-on-one). Participants are required to provide their own cases for treatment planning and for performing the surgeries.
