Course Title:  Full Arch Immediate Load: A Proven Business Model to Build Your Practice

 

Presenter: Dr. Doron Kalman

 

Course Date: September 21, 2019 (Saturday)

 

Course Time: 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST

Course Credits: 3

 

Course Description:

The concept of full arch immediate load in implant dentistry has become an increasingly popular treatment option largely due to patient demand and high clinical predictability.

Are you clinically prepared to satisfy the increasing patient demand for full arch fixed implant prostheses on the day of surgery?

In 2005, the over 65 population reached 43 million; by 2025, this group will escalate to 80 million, bringing along with it an increasing number of edentulous patients. When proven clinical techniques are applied, immediate full arch occlusal loading has a documented success rate of over 95 percent. 

In this brief introduction to full arch immediate load we will go over:

• the TeethXpress® method of immediate fixed conversion

• best practices for applying a team methodology with the surgical specialist, restorative doctor and the laboratory

Conventional chairside conversion as well as an all-digital approach to full arch immediate loading 

 While many clinicians are well trained in full arch reconstruction, the greater challenge is often understanding how to attract and influence ideal candidates for this procedure. In this course, we will demonstrate:

• a team approach to internal marketing that includes the doctor, hygienist and auxiliary staff members • how to identify and attract a consistent stream of TeethXpress® cases in your practice

• how to plant seeds for short and long-term case acceptance with existing patients

• the process of establishing patient trust at the initial consultation

• empower the treatment coordinator and leveraging the hygienist through patient recall

• how edentulous, partially-edentulous and fully-dentate immediate load candidates are each motivated differently

Learning Objectives:

-Identify patients who are good candidates for immediate load full arch restorations

-Having systems in place for achieving case acceptance 

-How to minimize chair time for optimal patient care and efficiency

-Adopting a clinical team approach for the surgical specialist, restorative doctor and laboratory

Course Description:

The number of baby boomer patients and older are growing daily throughout the country. A staggering statistic puts this part of the population in the tens of millions. It makes sense that our practices are also seeing the same changes toward an increasingly aging patient base.

  • Who are your at-risk patients?

  • Do you have a written protocol for the dry mouth patient?

  • What educational systems do you have for these patients? 

  • Are you using or recommending the most up to date products that will help these patients?

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. A ready to use written protocol that you can incorporate your next work day.

  2. Ensure that everyone in your office understands the at-risk patients for dry mouth

  3. Products that are available for both dry mouth and the high caries risk it creates
