During our 5-day course, each participant is guaranteed to place a minimum of 30 implants as the main surgeon. Each doctor will also assist their group member with 30+ implants and additional surgeries. Our live patient implant seminars will give you the confidence you need to start placing implants in your own office. Our Advanced levels will give you the opportunity to perform sinus elevations, mono blocks, ridge splits, learn advanced grafting techniques and management of complications.
Trinon Collegium Practicum has been educating dentists for over 12 years. With more than 130 Q-Implant Marathons organized, our international team of surgeons has trained more than 2,500 dentists who have placed 75,000 implants.
We truly believe that proper dental implant training with real hands-on, live surgical sessions will provide each of our participants with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the field of Implantology.
