“I have been restoring dental implants for over 10 years and throughout this time I had hoped that one day I would perform the actual surgical placement. I attended many lectures and study clubs where the speaker commonly left me with the two general messages: “I know way more than you, do not attempt this on your own” and the second “Refer those patients to me, I am the expert.” Fortunately all of that changed during the 3 day course at Dr. Stephen Diana’s office. It was a small group of participants in a truly hands-on setting. The first day was the most informative and intriguing lecture on dental implants that I have ever attended. Dr. Diana did not automatically assume that we are at his level of expertise. He simply acknowledged that we are beginners, and explained in a logical sequence the process of single implant placement. The second day we observed while he placed implants on several patients. During each case, he repeatedly reviewed the concepts that he had covered the previous day. Finally, the third and big day arrives, where you get to place your own implant on your own patient, being closely guided by Dr. Diana. At the end of that course I realized that if I chose my cases carefully, I can actually start to place implants immediately. Dr. Diana is not only an amazing dental surgeon, but he is also a brilliant communicator. He demystified dental implants for me and for that, I am eternally grateful.

“As a new grad, I knew I wanted to get into implant training. I was confused at the amount of courses out there, and they all seemed to cost a fortune. Dr. Diana’s course was recommended, and I couldn’t be happier that I listened to my colleagues. The class size was small enough to get one-on-one attention and hands-on experience. Dr. Diana is pure class, and really knows his stuff. Nicolle is an awesome course coordinator, Sue is a great assistant during the hands-on surgical session, and Elaine and Ryan are super knowledgeable implant reps. If you are looking for a practical and affordable introduction into implants, I would highly recommend Dr. Diana’s course.”Jake Carriere, DDS

From case selection and diagnosis to the planning and preparing of the surgical and restorative aspects of implant dentistry, this residency program will leave you with the knowledge that will change the way you practice.”Nancy Di Santo, DDS
“You don’t take this course for the CE points! Succinct learning, small group size and clinically practical. Truly invaluable to my journey as a dentist”Ryan Shugg, DDS
