Thinking of starting the implantological practice? Do you expect the training that will give you the confidence to work with the implant patients and reliably prepare you for the implantologist profession? Do you want to place your first implant under the guidance of eminent experts?

If so - a series of Curriculum is just for you!

Curriculum consists of nine one- and two-day intensive training sessions, during which the participants, besides the theoretical knowledge, they acquire practical skills and learn about the key issues for independent implementation of implantation in their practice. The program includes dozens of hours of diverse workshops and 3 full days of treatment. The graduates immediately after the training, being comprehensively trained to work with implant patients, can independently perform implant surgery and, as well, all procedures related to, including treatment planning, prosthetics and bone regeneration.

Except for intensive training there are surprises waiting for the participants - three unique integration meetings that provide an unforgettable experience and help you relax and regenerate between workshops.
