Eight lucky dentists will be escaping the cold, frozen winter and trading it for 3 days of valuable continuing education in a beautiful, tropical setting. KCSI's live patient treatment course takes place in picturesque Managua, Nicaragua at the state of the art Implant Live Training Center. The modern facility is well equipped with all the amenities and equipment you expect. Course participants will enjoy a low instructor to student ratio, daily case review and preparation, personal instruction throughout their day, and daily case critique at the end of each day. Course instructors include KCSI founder Dr. Karl Koerner, Dr. David Roberts, and is facilitated by experienced surgery instructors, which includes a specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
