  1. 1. IMPLANT DENTISTRY CONTINUUM LECTURES & HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS Gain the Knowledge and Confidence to Successfully Place and Restore Dental Implants with Dr. Arun Garg SAN FRANCISCO MARCH 2009 - AUGUST 2009
  2. 2. Dr. Arun Garg has been inspiring dentists, with hands-on training, to achieve the knowledge and confidence to place implants, for 20 years. Are you interested in placing and/or restoring your first implant? Or do you want to enhance your dental implantology skills? If the answer is “Yes,” Dr. Arun K. Garg’s Implant Dentistry Continuum is for you. In six weekends spread over six months, you will learn the latest concepts, techniques and technologies required to successfully place and restore implants in your practice. The Continuum offers a convenient weekend-only schedule to accommodate your busy schedule. In this spaced repetition learning format, you will take the knowledge gained in each session and apply it in your practice the following month. Then you will return, discuss your experience with the instructors, receive additional coaching, and learn additional surgical and restorative skills. What makes the Implant Dentistry Continuum so unique and valuable are the hands-on workshops. You won’t just sit and listen. You will do! Using specially designed surgical, soft tissue, and prosthetic models, you will sharpen your skills under the watchful eyes of a caring faculty before you return to the office. You will also have the opportunity to test and evaluate the major implant systems on the market today. It takes confidence to place dental implants. When you participate in the Implant Dentistry Continuum, your confidence will come from being skilled at what you do and from having a team of people around you who provide support and inspiration during the initial stages of learning. Intrigued? If so, read on. A new world of implant dentistry success awaits you.
  3. 3. EXTENSIVE HANDS-ON TRAINING AND INTERACTION WITH THE FACULTY HANDS-ON SESSIONS The hands-on sessions held throughout the Implant Dentistry Continuum will play a vital part in helping you apply the implant techniques discussed in the lectures. You won’t just sit in the audience and listen. Because most dentists learn best by doing, you will use specially designed surgical, soft tissue, and prosthetic models to enhance your skills before you return to the office. You will also have the opportunity to test and evaluate the major implant systems on the market today. FACULTY INTERACTION The Continuum faculty members are the leading authorities in the information they cover. Not only are they knowledgeable and experienced, they are enthusiastic about their topics. You will have numerous opportunities to have one-on-one interaction with them and Dr. Garg. LIMITED CLASS SIZE The limited class size of the Implant Dentistry Continuum has three major advantages. First, you will bring your own cases for review and treatment planning with the faculty. Second, you will have the opportunity to form lasting relationships with fellow dentists who are on the same implant excellence path as you. Finally, you will have phone and email consul- tations with faculty during and after the Con- tinuum to discuss all aspects of the surgical and prosthetic phases of implant treatment. 800.561.3065 •
