Course Summary: 

  • Begin your implant journey by learning sound fundamentals. This 16 CE course is a combination of lecture, hands-on, and virtual teaching modalities.
  • This course is taught in the beautiful facilities of Roseman University. It provides a didactic foundation for enrollees who will continue into the clinical (live patient) phase of the Entry Point™ continuum. It is also an excellent standalone course for those who want an introduction into the world of oral implantology. However, this course is more than a survey of implantology in the abstract; it is specifically designed to prepare you for the placement of starter-case implants in your own practice.

  • Introduction to Implantology
  • Case selection and treatment planning principles
  • Access: Flap design, reflection and management
  • Bone density concepts
  • PADS protocol for implant placement

  • Several hands-on procedures will be performed on lifelike models.

  1. Understand the fundamentals of implantology and be able to accurately implement treatment plan cases.
  2. Select cases that are in accordance with your knowledge level and comfort zone.

  5. With additional knowledge from completing the recommended prerequisite, KCSI Continuum 1 on surgical extractions, know how to perform socket grafting procedures.
  6. Be able to use a CBCT and related software 
  7. Place implants on a model in positions that support the prosthetic plan.

Dr. Barry Hillam

Dr. Barry Hillam is uniquely qualified to help his colleagues integrate dental implants into their own practices. He has spent a prodigious amount of time in surgery with his clients —  coaching them individually through scenarios including hard and soft tissue site preparation, placements, sinus and ridge augmentations, and full-arch solutions. Over the past decade, Dr. Hillam has taught implantology in a wide variety of settings — including as a faculty member for Implant Training Solutions, The California Implant Institute, and as a private consultant. Dr. Hillam has lectured on implant and soft tissue topics in many parts of the U.S. and abroad. He is on the advisory board of Novadontics, has worked for Hiossen Implants as a content editor, and is currently on the Nobel Biocare speaker’s list. He graduated from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in 2004, and he received his MAGD award in 2016. Dr. Hillam is passionate about the need to supplement the “how” of oral implantology with the critical theoretical elements that constitute the “what,” “why,” and “when” of the discipline — this unique approach, now taught at Roseman University, and combined with Dr. Karl Koerner’s standard of surgical excellence, will maximize clients’ ability to integrate dental implant procedures into their everyday workflow.
