Hey guys, I was just curious. Currently I am a 2nd year, and we got our 1st exposure to Implants. We have learned how to make stents and take all of the diagnostic records, in addition to assembling the implant parts in lab. Next fall, we will take a full implant course, which will teach us how to determine bone integrity, where to place the implant, how to take tomos, etc etc. We then are allowed to treatment plan 4 separate implant cases (one has to be an overdenture i think). Two implant companies provide all of the materials to us students for our patients free of charge!! Basically, we have to do the records appointment (mount casts, make stents), get the tomo taken care of, and present the case to the implant dept. Then oral surgery will place the implant, and we get to "install" the actual implants on our patient. I think it's pretty damn sweet and the future of dentistry, and I'm curious if any other programs implement it into the curriculum, and if so, do they to this degree?
