A minimally invasive approach to full arch

Dr. Todd Erickson

Dr. Robert T. Erickson is the Director of Education at Brighter Way Dental Center. In addition, he is also the Director of the Comprehensive Oral Implantology Residency program at Brighter Way, which is an affiliate training center for Jacksonville University’s newest post-doctoral, dental education program

Dr. Achraf Souayah

Dr. Souayah is a Doctor of Dental Surgery and a Diplomate of the Faculty of Dental Medicine of Monastir-Tunisia. He is the holder of several post-graduate certificates in Implantology, Aesthetic Periodontology, Implant Prosthodontics, Advanced Bone Surgery and complex oral rehabilitation.

This hybrid full arch course is a comprehensive master course that includes 4 days in-person education, with an introductory online session. The overarching focus is a minimally invasive approach into full arch implant dentistry that is a patient centric, and biologically driven solution. 

The 8 intensive course modules are comprised of lectures and hands-on exercises that complement each module. Medical and systemic patient evaluation is covered in detail. Virtual treatment planning utilizing advanced digital workflows, to determine predictable treatment option for the patient, is one of the many topics discussed along with surgical techniques and tools required for execution of minimally invasive full arch surgery. 

At the end of the course, attendees will have learned a step-by-step protocol from start to finish, how to successfully treatment plan and perform minimally invasive FP1 and FP3 treatment, while achieving exceptional restorative and esthetic outcomes. 

Graduates of the R2 Full Arch Master Course are qualified and encouraged to continue their full arch education by participating in the optional subsequent, R2 Full Arch Live Surgical Course, where attendees perform minimally invasive full arch surgeries treating patients - at the MINEC Implant Center in Tijuana Mexico.
