The Education Week Boston 2020 has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Education Week Boston 2021 will take place from June 7-11, 2021. Many thanks for your understanding.
This ITI Education Week, held at Harvard 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 the school applies.
