Our Mentorship Program

 

SURGICAL WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTION MENTORSHIP OPPORTUNITY

In my professional experience, I have found that the best approach to proficient and confident tooth extractions is achieved through one-on-one training with a focus on patient specific cases.

Very early in my career, I was fortunate enough to have mentors willing to share their time and experience which provided me with the confidence to pursue a general practice with a focus on surgical procedures. After 25 years, my practice has evolved to the point where most of my time is spent on the removal of impacted wisdom teeth.

I can offer you instruction on how to select cases appropriate to your current skillset level, which is the key to a successful outcome. This will build confidence and ultimately growth in your abilities which will result in patient satisfaction and the benefit of being able to keep more cases in your own practice.

I will guide you in treatment planning with as much preliminary assistance as is required. This will be accomplished through discussion involving clinical and radiographic examination, planned course of action, and instrument selection. Then offer you the opportunity to bring your patients to our learning centre where they can have their teeth removed by yourself with as much guidance as you feel you require. I welcome and encourage as much one-on-one prior communication as you feel is needed for you to feel comfortable.

Your mentorship fee can easily be covered with your billings for the day. Fee for service for any procedure you perform will be strictly between your patient and yourself.

As your experience evolves, you will find that you will be able to provide your existing and new patients services including; simple extractions, impacted and erupted wisdom tooth extractions, full mouth clearances and more.  Your talents will eliminate the need for out of office referrals to specialists in all but the most complicated cases.

Dr Mark Cicci attended The University of Toronto for his undergraduate studies and went on to graduate from The Faculty of Dentistry with Honours in 1992.  He spent time in Ecuador providing surgical services to communities with minimum access to dental care. He has been practicing dentistry in the GTA for over 25 years and has narrowed his scope of practice to oral surgical procedures including but not limited to third molar extractions.

MENTORSHIP – IMPLANTS

Unfortunately, it is all too common for dentists to invest significant time and money into implant surgical education programmes but leave lacking the confidence to apply what they have learned when they return to their own practice.

Confidence in surgical implant dentistry only comes with clinical experience. Didactic education provides the required knowledge base, but confidence in performing these procedures only happens as we complete actual clinical cases.

Mentorship provides an opportunity for clinicians to treat their own patients under the guidance of a more experienced peer. The mentorship environment fosters the development of confidence.

In my professional experience, I have found that the best approach to proficient and confident tooth extractions is achieved through one-on-one training with a focus on patient specific cases.

Small Group Mentorship sessions are available. Peer to Peer. Limited to three participants, each participant will have the opportunity to treat up to three patients. In addition to your own cases, you will also observe the surgeries of the other participants in this collegial experience. The opportunity of being involved in the case workup and surgical treatment of nine clinical cases!
