Ahmad M. Fard, DDS, MS

Course Overview

This one-day implant course emphasizes the sound decision making process that will help the general practitioner avoid complications during implant therapy. Issues in implant placement from a surgical point of view will be presented. Soft and hard tissue evaluation and assessment will be presented in a logical manner that helps practitioners aim for optimal functional and esthetic outcomes.

The hands-on component of this course will teach participants how to make impressions and surgical guides in their office. Appropriate implant and abutment selection will be presented as well as indications for different prosthetic restorations (i.e. screw versus cement retained) to the participants.

This course presents treatment planning for partially-edentulous patients for implant-supported restorations. Participants are encouraged to bring their cases from private practice for discussion.

Course Objectives

At the completion of the course participants will be able to:

  • Identify and avoid common soft and hard tissue complications
  • Identify prosthetic problems before they arise
  • Fabricate a surgical guide in office
  • Make impression for implant-supported restorations
  • Understand delivery of implant-supported restorations
  • Identify alternative solutions to simple and complex implant cases
