Constantly growing, the Oral Implantology Study Club is now divided into 3 components:
- workshop sessions,
- evening seminars,
- and surgery sessions.
SEE BELOW FOR OUR 2017 PROGRAM.
Open to all study club members, workshop sessions are one day sessions that are held on Saturdays. Every year, many different workshop topics are covered, such as anterior esthetics, practice management, dental technology, and different types of bone grafting techniques. The sessions consist of lectures, demonstration surgeries, and hands on components.

Dr. Li assists all cases personally providing a one-on-one learning experience unlike other study clubs. For attendees with 3-4 cases, a private session is also available. If booking a new technique (ie sinus lift) for the first time, please attend the appropriate workshop session first.
Most sessions are at the BCDA Learning Centre
