Evidence-Based Clinical Concepts in Implant Dentistry

In association with the University of Bern

Course information

This 4-day evidence-based foundation course is designed for clinicians with an interest in the field of implant dentistry. This course presents evidence-based treatment concepts for the rehabilitation of fully and partially edentulous patients. Besides lectures, the participants will see several live surgeries observing how dental implants are applied. In addition, the course offers the opportunity of several workshops in treatment planning, digital workflows, surgical and prosthetic workshops. The course consists of a theoretical part with plenty of fully documented clinical cases and evidence-based solutions, live surgeries, live prosthetics and hands-on workshops using simulation models for each topic.

We invite you to come to our wonderful city of Bern in the center of Switzerland, discover the latest evidence-based treatment options, enhance your knowledge, have fun and make new friends.
