Hi All, I am about to apply for AEGD and/or GPR and I am not sure where to apply. I have contacted many program directors but I am not getting good/complete responses. Could you please share your experience/knowledge of where can be a good program heavy on Implant placement? VA's are good but I need some more options. My first choice is Match participant! Thanks a lot

You are not gonna get "heavy implant placement" training in a AEGD/GPR program. You gotta do a perio or OMFS residency for that.

Thanks. I am not able to spend another 3-6 years at school for family reasons. I am also not interested in weekend implant courses because I know I am not going to get the confidence I need in such courses. One of my faculties at School told me AEGD/GPR can be a very good option if they are heavy in implant procedures.

Try the Foundry in Alabama or New Horizons AEGD in Tempe AZ. Those are almost Implant focused. Be aware that they have practicing dentists applying to these programs. For example the one in Arizona has two dentists who were practicing coming out of practice to do an AEGD. Shows you how much they are going to learn.

I have heard of one or two GPR's in New York City being very implant focused. I can't remember what the name was, but it's worth looking in to.

Hey I remembered the name of one of the hospitals in New York that I saw that placed a lot of implants: Kings County.

Adding to my previous reply, I also think followup and management of complications are equally important when it comes to implant surgical training, which I don't think AEGD/GPR programs can adequately cover in one-year period.

AEGD/GPR won't get you there. 1 year isn't enough time to place and actually see the follow up complications. You should just go into private practice. Learn how to become proficient at general dentistry. After all, you're going to be a general dentist.
