Course Description

Friday, January 24th and Saturday, January 25th

The ultimate goal of this 2 days learning experience, is to provide the participants with knowledge, fundamental concepts and principles of bone regeneration. The course will provide specific techniques proven to result in sound, healthy, and robust bone foundation after tooth extraction for future implant placement.


The first part of the course (Friday fundamental course) will cover the treatment of posterior tooth sockets and osseous defects. The second day (Saturday advanced course) will expand on the previous knowledge acquired the first day and will cover the treatment of sockets/osseous defects in the aesthetic area including immediate implants.


The participant has the freedom to sign up only for the first-day course, but must complete this fundamental course to participate in the second-day advanced course. Participants that have completed one of our previous implant courses can sign up only for the advanced course, if desired.

Session Reviews

You guys did an absolutely outstanding job! I am honored to have access to your wealth of knowledge and your generosity in sharing your experience with me. I can’t wait to attend more and learn more. Thank you all again.

– Dr. Mina Tadros

This course has reinforced my bone grafting techniques. I had a lot of questions answered and have more confidence with treating my patients. I’ve known Dr. Trejo for many years and he and his associates did an excellent job with lecture & hands-on practice. I highly recommend this course to anyone to become comfortable with socket grafting procedures. Thank you Dr. Trejo.

– Dr. Eric Noser

I learned a lot in this course. Not only did it give me an overview of the principles associated with ridge preservation, but I also learned about the armamentarium and materials needed. We reviewed real world recommendations on how to simplify the procedure. We had the opportunity to manipulate the membrane and bone. Excellent. Thank you.
