If you are already placing implants, this course will give you the tools and confidence to take your practice to the next level in oral surgery. Learn a simple, safe, and predictable method for digital workflow and surgical techniques to reduce risk and improve patient outcomes.

In this course, Dr. Robert Stanley, the Smile Engineer, will guide doctors through choosing a final restoration type, ISQ testing, impression techniques, and optical scanning options for implant restorations. The final session’s content will build on previous sessions, exploring single unit implant restorations, implant maintenance, complications, and more.

The Stanley Institute Implant Pro Track will leave doctors confident to plan, place, and restore single unit dental implants in their practice.

There are break-out sessions for implant coordinators and financial coordinators. This course is made for doctors and their team. Cost $895 per team member.

Each doctor is encouraged to bring a case to review with Dr. Rob. He will be happy to do a quick review with the doctor/class.

We welcome doctors to incorporate their own cases into the live-surgical add-on portion of our implant continuum. To learn more, please visit our personal mentorship page.

We designed the continuum to build on itself, from Essentials 1 through to Essentials 3. Information covered in Essentials 1 will not be reviewed in this course; we recommend doctors complete the entire Stanley Institute continuum.

Yes. Although each clinician’s skill level is unique to them, our doctors leave our courses very confident to place dental implants in their offices. Some doctors come to Stanley Institute already placing many implants, while others attend the course to learn the fundamentals of single unit implant placement. We advise all doctors and team members to use caution when implementing new procedures and techniques into their practice.

We have established SI Guided to guide you thru any implant placement help that you may need when returning to your office. We also have training for 3Shape, intraoral scanning and 3D printing for doctors and team members.
