Precision Fully Guided and Freehand
Dental Implant Surgical Training

Precision FULLY Guided Surgery as well as FREE-Handed surgery both have their place in the realm of implant dentistry today. 

This 3-day combination course gives you real world hands-on experience Dr.  Vance with both Fully Guided as well as Free-handed surgery. 

This course are taught from a restorative driven perspective and gives you protocols and tools for immediate implementation into your office. 

Dr. Vance Costello invites you to attend this very intense 3-day LIVE Dental Implant Surgical Course in Monroe LA. The course objective is to give participants the experience and knowledge to provide dental implant treatment to the partially edentulous patient but also to prepare treatment sites for future implant placement. This course is highly restoratively driven with emphasis on key parameters for successful treatment planning and long-term patient outcome.

One day of workshops & lectures is followed by two days of Live surgeries performed by YOU. The number of implants placed during the course is dependent upon patients' clinical needs and relative to exceptional patient treatment. The cases are selected to give the attendees experience in a variety of implant scenarios that you will experience in your office, such as extraction with immediate implant placement, posterior and anterior implant placement, crestal sinus bump/lift, ridge augmentation, grafting etc.

During the two surgical days you will treat patients using Fully Guided Surgical Guides as well as Free-Handed implant placements. Attendees will also get hands-on experience treating patients utilizing PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin)/ CGF(Concentrated Growth Factors) as well as all aspects of bone grafting. A step-by-step learning methodology ensures that course participants return with the confidence to duplicate proper protocols in their own practice. An active unrestricted Louisiana Dental License is required for attendees to be able to actively participate in surgical procedures.
