Live Implant Training Program

Formerly operating as the Dominican Training Institute, the Live Implant Training program enables course participants to learn and practice the craft of placing dental implants confidently and competently in a controlled clinical environment. Hosted in the breath-taking and idyllic island getaway of the Dominican Republic, participants are instructed on how to implement their newly learned skills into their offices with high remuneration. 

The program consists of five days of comprehensive surgical instruction, during which, doctors will place implants, suture, perform extractions, sinus lifts, bone grafts and more. Additionally, the course is “small-format,” wherein, clinicians can closely interact with instructors and make the most of personalized, step-by-step guidance on the patients they work on.

As our emphasis is on total comprehension of, and the ability to use the information learned, doctors will place, on average, 17-20 implants throughout the program. At course completion, participants will receive 38 CE credits under AGD subject code 690

(Lecture: 6 hours, participation: 32 hours).

If you are looking to enhance your practice and provide your patients with a reason for choosing you above the rest, then our tailor-made, hands-on dental implant course will help you achieve that goal. 

How it Works: Patient Selection & Skill Level

The Live Implant Training program offers participants a wide range of pre-screened patients that have been carefully selected to fulfill each clinician’s specific educational objectives. Prior to the course, an IST staff consultant will discuss the following with participants:

  • Overarching desired educational objectives.
  • Individual skill level
    • Beginning (placed 25 implants or less)
    • Intermediate (placed 26-100 implants)
    • Advanced (placed 100 implants or more)

Upon arrival, doctors will be assigned patients based on these two criteria; ensuring they are hitting the mark for their desired educational goals.

In some cases, patients might require a combination of complex and advanced dentistry procedures, at which point the procedure will be carried out by the necessary number of participants with an attending instructor.

Please note that these designations are guidelines. IST understands that surgical training and experience classification involves more than the number of implants placed. It is also understood that there will be combination type cases that require simple to advanced procedures on individual patients.

Subjects covered for each skill level designation broadly includes:

Beginning Clinicians

  • Simple implant placement
  • Multiple implant placements with adequate bone available
  • Extractions with and without socket grafting
  • Incision design and suturing techniques
  • Soft and hard tissue management

Intermediate Clinicians

  • Multiple implant placement cases
  • Extractions and immediate placement
  • Extractions, grafting and closure with or without barriers
  • Intra-crestal sinus lifts
  • Full arch implant placement
  • Ridge augmentation with or without implant placement

Advanced Clinicians

  • Full arch extractions, grafting and implant placement
  • All-on-4, 5 or 6+
  • Lateral sinus grafting
  • Full arch edentulous cases
  • Lateral windows
  • Atrophic maxillary and mandibular cases
  • Ridged augmentation, ridge splitting, etc.
  • Other advanced grafting procedures

All of this considered, great care is taken to ensure each doctor gets the opportunity to work on cases that provide progress in their educational endeavors and significant efforts are made to provide clinicians with specific cases they’d like to work on.
