In association with the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine




Course Information

This ITI Education Week, held at Harvard School of Dental Medicine and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, has been designed for clinicians with experience in the field of implant dentistry. The program focuses on comprehensive treatment planning in the form of cases that will be presented, discussed and applied on simulation models. This five-day course includes lectures, live surgeries, live prosthetics, workshops and hands-on sessions. It also includes useful translational research information that has a direct impact on clinical applications, underscoring the evidence-based treatment concepts both schools apply.
