Hands-On Implant and Grafting Course


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.

      Depending on which location you want to go to:
      Santo Domingo is $13,950. (everything included – with flight form Miami or Atlanta)
      Laos & Cambodia are $11,950 (everything included – with flight from Los Angeles)

  1. dr m s ray says:

    what is the exact fees for advance 1 course and what does it include, like does it include airfare and accomodation and local transport.

    • Agata says:

      The fees for all the course levels are the same. $13,950 for Santo Domingo and $11,950 for Laos and Cambodia.
      Our current special if you register and pay in full by March 1st, we will include your flight.
      The course price always include:
      all include hotel for 7 nights,
      daily transportation to and from clinic,
      Trinon Titanium Implant package (about 13 implants plus instruments)

      • Dr. Jay Vanolli says:

        Agata, a prerequsite for these courses should most definately be: “Ability to read the price and lack of airfare in said price as listed at the top of the page”. Just a thought…

  2. Rita Ferreira says:

    Me and my husband are interested in the beginners course in Laos. can you include a double room in the same price? the flights are not included right? And we would like to now if we’re going to learn the prosthetic part in all kinds of surgery like screwed and cimented. and who are the instructors?
    thank you

    • Agata says:

      The main tutor of the course is Dr. Dr. Matthias Peuten. The medical team of Phnom Penh University Clinic: Prof. Suon Phany, Prof. Tuy Thel, Dr. Vorn Vutha, Dr. Seng Rosamith. Q-Implant Marathon is a practical implantology course, you will be introduced to prosthesis, however the course concentrates more on implants.
      As part of the special we do cover your from from LA, however if you want to purchase your own ticket we will give you a $1200 credit for your flight. (Offer is only valid if registration and full payment is received by March 1st, 2012).
      Please contact us directly (info@optimumsolutiongroup.com or 630-705-1002 to discuss the room options)

  3. John Masser says:

    Hello, I’m interested in taking the beginner course. This may be a silly question but if I take the course in Dominican Republic will the training be in english? Thanks.

  4. B.T. TRAN says:

    This is the best hands on beginner course for placing implants ever!!!! Placing 30 implants in five days with live patients will give anyone the confidence and knowledge to start implant dentistry in his office.

  5. abdelrahman tawfik says:

    hello i am interested in beginner course but i would like to ask about prosthetic part do we will finish cases or not?

  6. Abdelrahman tawfik says:

    I would like to ask u some questions
    Do i will place implants in different cases like anterior and posterior dense bone u know different situation
    Second do i will prepare cases before implant placing like tracing radiograph identify length diameter by myself not just drilling?

  7. B.T. TRAN says:

    You will have a chance to place implants in all locations of the mouth. You can prepare the case with the instructors before you “drill”. The instructors are very knowledgeable, they will help you out. How much you can learn from the course, depends on how much you know about implants.

  8. Dr Gavin Steinberg says:

    I am interested in course in Cambodia ,I have placed about 60 implants so far ,and am interested in placements with augmentation and sinus lifts,mainly crestall but possibly lat approach ,am also interested in piessosurgery ,would like to know which course is best for me ,probably advanced 1 ,I live in Perth ,Western Australia ,and would like an idea of costing with airfares cheers Gavin

  9. Lukasz Pienkowski says:

    Hi Gavin,

    looking at your comment it looks that the Advance I course is the right one for you and you would be learning various augmentation techniques during the course. Some of our recent Advanced I participants also used piezosurgery within their cases and I will be happy to get you in touch with them.

    I organize the courses in Asia from Singapore and you are welcome to drop me a mail for further information on costing, flights and other aspects of the course. Lukasz[at]collegium-practicum.org



    • Agata says:

      Yes, there are still a few spots open.
      We recently a summer course (Jun 25-29 in Cambodia) in addition to the already schedualed 2012 courses.
      Please send us an email for more information.

  10. semi condoianis says:

    I did not know what to expect but this course was above any expectations. The class is all about surgery and while it’s true that you do place 30 implants you also gain a lot more first hand experience by watching at least another 60 implants being placed. I loved the location as well people were friendly and warm, and the instructors were extremely skilled.
    At the end of the course we gained tremendous knowledge and many new friends. I reccomend this class to anyone interested

  11. Agata says:

    Unfortunately, the flight in not included from UAE. The flight is included to Santo Domingo from Madrid. However to let you know, due to high interest, we organized an extra course in Cambodia in June(23-30)2012


    Hello.I’m interested for the beginner course probably for 2013.Is the flight ticket included in the price from Greece?What exactly is included in the price except from the clinical practice and the implants gift?Thank in advance

    I had 2 questions:
    1-will the course give me any CONTINUING EDUCATION HOURS in the USA,

    • Dominika says:

      The area is safe and your wife can come and stay with you at the resort, but please know that you will not have much time to spend with her Monday-Friday. For more information please contact me at courses[at]optimumsolutiongroup.com

  15. Lukasz Pienkowski says:

    Hi Mills,

    at this moment we are not directly giving CPD points in AU, though I know that in some countries the documentation that you create during the course and official certificates by the University we work with make them eligible.

    Ideallly you check with your association but in addition to the documentation the practical experience one gains is vast and beneficial for novices and advanced suregeons alike.

    Do let me know if you have further questions, I am quite happy to answer



  16. TruongXoa says:

    I’m from Vietnam. I am very interested in your courses in Laos and Cambodia in November and October, 2012. I just have one question: Do you have any certificate or degree after the course and who is the certificate conffered by?

  17. hoang says:

    Just a question, all these implants placing will be restored later on.

    • Dominika says:

      Yes the price for Cambodia/Laos and Dominican Rep is $13,950. The reason for the increase is that participants now place the same amount of implants at all locations. The implants increased from 22 to 30.
