    Loma Linda University... Dr. Lozada is the program director (a past president of AAID), there is a 1 year fellowship or a 3 year residency program. It is an excellent program.

    it's an excellent program. it's also very difficult to get into.

    if one has finished a maxilloprosth residency or some other surgically and restorative extensive postgrad residency he has a good chance of getting into that LLU program.

    Who has more info on LLU? I might be in a good financial shape after residency would be interested in 1 year of implants only if it was worth delaying the salary.

    I attended the Implant MAXICourse at LLUSD, it is a 10 month program, 2 days each month, open to any dentist who pays the tuition.

    Each month there are lectures from various people (US and International) on all topics related to implant dentistry ranging from surgery to restoration. There is literature to review as well. Each month there is at least 1 surgery that is seen live in the lecture hall. Anyone in the class can do the surgery, first they present the case and the class discusses all the relevant issues. The more ambitious students will place several implants during the course. I did not place any but I think it is very helpful for restoring dentists to understand the surgical aspects of implant dentistry.
