Implant Coordinator Certificate

As the need for implant care expands exponentially, having a well-trained implant coordinator is more crucial than ever. Implant coordinators ensure that your patients have all-important education and financial conversations while receiving well-organized care. Effective implant coordinators can take over right after a dentist has diagnosed and created a treatment plan, holding patients’ hands through every step of the process. This full-day course will help your practice staff become the implant coordinator every forward-thinking dental office needs. You’ll engage with our experience presenter, Karen Young, FAIDA. Attendees will learn how to effectively educate patients and explain procedures, review and complete all consent forms and financial arrangements, and oversee implant cases to completion. In addition, this full-day, Zoom-only course will provide first-rate insight into surgical and prosthetic procedures, case presentation, communication skills, and oversight of all phases of implant care.
