I'm interested in GPR to gain experience with implants and sedation. Which programs will give me the most experience in a 1 year program?
Implant experience will vary at all sites, but at those you'll place at least 5 and restore a few more.
Something else to point out is that VA programs are usually pretty good for placing a lot of implants. The reason: the patients don't have to pay. So, you end up doing a lot of implant retained over-dentures, and single unit implants (instead of FPDs). The problem is that some program directors are more hesitant to let you place implants than others. The key is to find a VA program where the director and his supporting staff are keen on implant placement. The San Antonio VA is a great example.
As a disclaimer, I'm not going to a VA program (I am doing a GPR this upcoming summer), so don't assume I'm trying to "talk them up." I'm just trying to help point out some of the aspects that may help you find what you're looking for.
