welcome to Dental Implant Trainers
One of the fastest ways a general dentist can increase production is to integrate implant surgery into their practice. After researching various implant courses, Dental Implant Trainers felt there was a demand for a course that focuses solely on teaching implant surgery from a GP’s prospective. This led to the development of our simple implant placement course that teaches simple implant surgery to GP’s who have never placed an implant. Post-training support is integral to the success of a doctor who is new to placing implants, so we also provide In-office Mentoring programs along with additional courses, allowing doctors to continue to enhance their skills beyond simple implant placement. A unique service that came from our mentoring program is our Visiting Surgical Doctor program. This program allows you to schedule our training doctor to complete procedures in your office, under your billing, keeping more patients in-house. The ultimate goal of Dental Implant Trainers beyond education, is to give doctors an alternative to sending their own patients out of the door.

DENTAL IMPLANT TRAINERS
Practice Advancement through Skill Enhancement
Dental Implant Trainers was initially founded to provide a course for general dentists who have never placed an implant, to teach the skills necessary to perform a simple implant surgery. Our Simple Implant Placement course, which is designed and taught by a general dentist, teaches essential surgical techniques, drilling protocol for any implant system, grafting and suturing, hands-on implant placement on models, along with additional topics that are needed to start placing implants. Attendees of this unique course also view a live implant surgery immediately following the lecture. Since inception, we have added additional courses along with In-office Mentoring, and Visiting Surgical Doctor programs, so doctors can continue to learn from Dental Implant Trainers to grow their practice.
