The new 2014 Leading Edge Implant Symposium will be a unique educational collaboration in an amazing resort setting.

This February, the Sclar Center is doing something different. Rather than presenting a week-long, comprehensive dental implant training conference, as in past years, we will be focusing on All-on-4® Full Arch Immediate Function and State-of-the-Art Implant Esthetics in a 2-day format.

I am pleased to invite you to attend The 2014 Leading Edge Implant Symposium, at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes Resort, Orlando, Florida on Saturday and Sunday February 8-9, 2014. February is a delightful time of year in Florida and may be an ideal time to travel with your family. The Grande Lakes Ritz-Carlton is located in the heart of all the Orlando attractions—just minutes away from SeaWorld and the Walt Disney Resorts. It’s also surrounded by 500 acres of lush gardens with bass stocked lakes, a top ranked Greg Norman Golf Course and a Spa second to none; there is something for everyone. The resort offers breath taking views and a thoughtful array of amenities with world renowned Ritz hospitality. Come for the education and stay for a vacation at the special conference rate of $249 per night single or double occupancy.

This will be a unique educational collaboration.

Joining me will be Joseph Kan, DMD, MS, Prosthodontist; Gary Orentlicher, DMD, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon; and Juan Diego Cardenas, DDS, CAGS, Prosthodontist.

As a result of increasing patient awareness and demands for immediate function and esthetic implant procedures, the symposium topics are of great interest and importance to clinicians who desire to stay at the forefront of implant dentistry. It’s these clinicians who will be best posed to experience growth of their practices by offering the leading-edge procedures their patients are looking for.

Day 1 Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the quality of life benefits that the All- on-4® solution provides for edentulous and terminal dentition patients.

  • Fully understand the surgical, prosthetic and laboratory procedures, and team work required for successful and efficient delivery of All-on-4® full-arch immediate-load provisional and definitive prosthesis.
  • Avoid, identify and treat All-on-4® surgical and prosthetic complications.
  • Understand the benefits of CT Guided workflow as well as the instrumentation and techniques required to minimize complications and successfully deliver CT Guided full arch immediate function procedures using conventional axial implant placement and CT Guided full arch immediate function procedures using conventional axial implant placement and CT Guided All-on-4® procedures for your patients.
