Dominican Training Institute - Implant Training - Multiple Dates

Dominican Training Institute - Implant Training - Multiple Dates

  • DTI - San Pedro - Dominican Republic (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Dominican Training Institute (DTI) was founded with a mission to provide extensive, hands-on, surgical training in implant dentistry.

According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the U.S. dental implant industry was valued at $5.6 billion in 2017. The market is forecast to grow at a rate of 7.7% per year, yet, only 10% of U.S. dentists place implants. The Dominican Training Institute is changing all that.

The Dominican Training Institute is headquartered in La Crosse, Wisconsin, but operates out of San Pedro, Dominican Republic. Unlike many lecture-based courses on implant dentistry, the Dominican Training Institute focuses on practical, hands-on dental implant training by a team of expert implantologists, oral surgeons and periodontists. This allows our participants to implement implant-related procedures into their practices quickly and expand their patient services confidently and successfully.

At course completion, participants will have a thorough understanding of implant systems and protocols, and the confidence to incorporate implant placement and related surgeries in their practice.

The Dominican Training Institute is an AGD-approved PACE provider. Each participant is awarded 32 CE hours at the end of the course.

— DR. ERIC STULL - ONALASKA, WI
The A-dec trip to Portland was not only fun, but also very informative. It is definitely worth the trip to see the factory and learn about the history of A-dec as a company. This event really helped me envision what my dream practice looks like...

A-dec Angles of Access - In-Office CE - Scheduled upon Request

Performed by A-dec Territory Managers, Roy Fried and Scott Belz. Together, they represent more than 30 years of local experience in assessing dental office needs and helping customers understand the importance of good equipment maintenance and good dental team health. This in-office program is offered at no charge as a courtesy of A-dec. Roy and Scott are also credentialed CEAS, Certified Ergonomic Specialists. 

CONTACT US ANTIME TO SCHEDULE THIS CE FOR YOUR OFFICE.

Access to the oral cavity is particularly challenging because it is small and narrow, and limits the field of vision for the dental team. This encourages you to work in awkward, inflexible position to facilitate a better visual working area. Prolonged endurance of static postures may result in musculoskeletal disorders such as chronic lower back pain, tension neck syndrome, joint issues, spinal disk degeneration, and ultimately a career ending injury.  

This course is open for Doctors, Assistants, and Hygienists and is conducted chairside. Dental professionals will practice utilizing a specialized manikin head and their equipment to reinforce optimal habits for their health and safety, as well as the comfort of their patients. The course is supported by a leave-behind desktop or mobile application that will assist in changing learned habits and behavior inside the dental practice.

I Hate Endo + CT for the GP - La Crosse, WI

to Mar 30

I Hate Endo + CT for the GP - La Crosse, WI

Join Dr. Jon Feist, DDS, for a two-part, two-day course on Endo and CBCT. Brief course descriptions are below with information to sign-up!

I HATE ENDO
Much too often clinicians avoid performing endodontic treatment for their patients, referring out this highly predictable and profitable procedure because they are uncomfortable with the basic protocols and procedures required. This course will help you diagnose and treat most of the cases that come into your office and know up front which ones to refer.

CT FOR THE GP
Dental CBCT’s are here to stay. There is so much misinformation about regulations, diagnostic criteria, everyday usefulness and clinical processes concerning CBCT’s that many GP’s refuse to take advantage of this simple tool. CBCT’s are the modern 3D version of the common dental “radiographs” we use everyday.

ABOUT DR. JON FEIST
Dr. Jon has been in private practice since 1985. In 2017, he was awarded the coveted Mastership Award from the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies. He also has fellowships in the International Association of Physiologic Aesthetics (IAPA) and the Academy of Laser Dentistry.

Contact Lynn Malin at 608-498-4855 to register. Tuition $1150, (29th-30th)

Guest Speaker

Meet Bridget LaBahn, our guest speaker!
MHA, President – AADOM’s Minneapolis/St Paul Chapter
AADOM Member Since 2015 | Horton Orthodontics - Woodbury, MN

"One thing I love most about AADOM is the opportunity for networking and learning. There are many great mentors and speakers who provide a wealth of knowledge for me to be able to grow as an individual and provide tools to help grow our practice. The national conference provides such great information that I can’t get at a lot of the local conferences. AADOM focuses on the front office team and I think that is important because we are often overlooked in the dental field. Not only do I learn at these conferences, I have such a great time with our chapter members and new friends we have met along the way."


Meet InTech Marketing - dental marketing pro’s!

InTech understands how frustrating it is to be responsible for the marketing at your practice, perhaps making you feel like you are working alone in the important task of growing the practice on top of your responsibilities for the front office team.  You may realize you are marketing on faith and faith alone – not knowing how or if your marketing plan is working – but regardless, you are asked to manage it.

Our system ensures you are not working alone by providing you with a team of experienced professionals as well as the analytics to support marketing decisions to increase patient acquisition.

We have developed a system that is predictable and specific to each generation that will result in more inquiries, patients, and revenue.  The best part is we do all the work so you can focus on your patients and practice. Learn more at intechdentalmarketing.com!
