Implant Placement Conference hosted by Dr. Thomas W. Kauffman, DDS

This is a fast-paced, comprehensive learning experience designed and geared for serious dentists who desire to raise both their skill set and knowledge.  Clinical and surgical anatomy, prevention of surgical misadventures, and current implant protocols will be covered in depth.  Over 3-days, attendees will hear lectures and then practice what they are learning on anatomical specimens.  This course is limited in size in order to maximize the amount of one-to-one learning during the practicum and lectures.

Testimonials from Previous Participants: 
 

"There is nothing like hands-on cadaver training for dental implants, grafts, sinus lifts, and exploring anatomy.  This course launched my dental implant career, and I haven't looked back.  Dr. Sharawy is a wealth of knowledge, and Kauffman's generosity and complete preparation made for an intense and rewarding 3 days in beautiful Atlanta."   
E P., Dentist from Southern California


"Whether your goal is to review anatomy for advance implant placement techniques or you feel that you could use the review because you want to be a better dentist, this is the class for you.  Dr. Sharawy is an absolute amazing wealth of anatomy knowledge.  He is an incredible resource for the dental world.  I personally would love to have the opportunity to learn from Dr. Sharawy again and again.  This class was definitely worth the investment, everyone walked away with an improved appreciation for head and neck anatomy.  Thank you for the opportunity, Dr. Kauffman."  
B.M. - Dentist from Florida

"I took the first CMG head and neck anatomy in 2012.  Dr. Sharawy's expertise with the material was impressive.  This was equally matched by his ability to communicate and teach this material to our group in a compressed 3 days.  Dr. Kauffman and Dr. Chin unite Dentistry and ENT unlike any other team you've ever seen.  Their combined knowledge of the relationships between the oral cavity and the associated sinuses is immense.  A must for any dentist who wants to accurately diagnose and treat their patients."  
S.O. - General Dentist from California

"The surgical anatomy course organized by Dr. Kauffman was a preeminent learning experience.  The instructors, Dr. Sharawy and Dr. Chin were both excellent in all respects but their willingness to share their respective skills in lab were outstanding!  Due to the limited attendance the individual attention from the instructors has not been equaled in any other course that I have taken in over 20 years.  The ability to have access to the pre-dissection CBVT of all of the specimens was most unique and very informative.  Dr. Kauffman's skill and attention to every detail of the experience from the acomodations, lecture and lab organization, sponsors to the extra-curricular activities is rivaled only by the Misch Institute.  This course is not to be missed! " 
Dr. Brett Moran, Periodontist from Connecticut

"I attended the first Surgical Anatomy, Advanced Bone Grafting, and Cadaveric Dissection course hosted by Dr. Thomas Kauffman in Atlanta, and given by Dr. Mohamed Sharawy.  It recharged my batteries and motivated me to start relearning all the anatomy I had forgotten during 45 years of practicing mostly restorative dentistry.  It was a great experience and I highly recommend this course to all who desire to start placing implants, or who simply want to regroup, recharge, and acquire the knowledge necessary to know and appreciate what we are looking at in our cone beam scans." 
C. L. – general dentist

“I highly recommend this course if you're placing your own implants or if you want to do more of your own oral surgery!  This was a great way to refresh and learn head and neck anatomy from an 'implantology/oral surgical' point of view, while enjoying the weekend in Atlanta with friends and colleagues.  Dr. Tom put together a spectacular fact-filled and fun-filled program!”
