Surgical Implant Mentorship Program

Surgical Implant Mentorship Program Objective: For dentists to become competent in placing implants in posterior short span edentulous spaces.

The Surgical Implant Mentorship is designed for the dental practitioner who wishes to start placing dental implants. The program is designed to be a comprehensive training program and includes hands-on training, assisted surgery on your own patient and staff training.

This program has a proven track record and is a unique opportunity for combining lectures, model surgeries, and one-on-one mentor-assisted surgeries on your own patients. Feel free to contact Dr. Li to speak to any graduates of this program.
