Course Description: 

This 2-day course will provide a live experience of the patient management, treatment planning, digital planning, surgical and restorative procedures involved with a full-arch, immediate loaded, screw-retained hybrid restoration. The participants will have the opportunity to observe a live surgery where teeth will be extracted, the ridge will be prepared, and implants will be placed immediately. Following the surgical procedure, a direct denture restorative conversion will be performed for the immediate loading of the implants. The participants will have the opportunity to perform a complete hands-ondenture conversion for this full-arch immediate loading scenario. The subsequent final prosthesis fabrication will be discussed in depth following the live surgery and hands-on exercises.

What previous participants thought about this course 

“For a Periodontist looking to take their implant practice to the next level with Straumann Pro-Arch, I cannot recommend a better course. The live surgery combined with a hands-on denture conversion was an invaluable experience. I left the course confident and ready to immediately implement this treatment in my practice.”

 Adam McClellan, DDS  Kansas City, MO


"It was an excellent experience for me and my referring restorative dentists.  All of the staff and faculty were congenial and helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone taking their implant practice to the next level with Straumann Pro-arch.”

Dr. Takanari Miyamoto  Omaha, NE


“Excellent and well organized course. The basics of the Straumann Pro-Arch system were covered with thoroughness and no detail was left untouched. The hands on portion of the course was very instructive and the live surgery helped greatly in bolstering the theoretical learning provided by the course. Drs. Marcuschamer and Arguello are captivating speakers and the addition of Dr. Paniz added a stimulating international flair to the course. Bravo !!! “
