The Dental Implant Surgical Seminar (DISS) helps general and restorative dentists expand their private practice into implant surgery. The seminar provides a thorough introduction to the basics of dental implant surgery and hands-on training in soft tissue management and anatomical structures.
The DISS Implant seminar consists of two days of lectures and two days of surgery. Lectures are given by veteran practitioners who have placed thousands of implants and held academic positions in implantology at highly regarded institutions such as the New York University College of Dentistry. Digital lecture files are provided to each participant. Then, all participants get a hands-on surgical experience, placing multiple implants in live patients through computer guided surgery. All surgeries are performed at the state-of-the-art UFM facility and are supervised by the DISS team of implant surgeons.
The advantage of DISS is that you will practice on your first patient's 3D-printed jaw model before the actual surgery. This feature of the course allows you to be comfortable and confident before your first surgery, and it improves patient outcomes and overall experience. Credits from DISS can be used toward the required 100 hours of implant education necessary for ICOI Fellowship. In addition, participants will receive 40 CE credits.

My name is Doctor Michael Rabel and I am from Baton Rogue Louisiana. This program offered me the opportunity to not only do something good for someone In my community, I got to change somebody’s life.
My patient would not have had the resources to pay for his implants but through DISS I was able to place fifteen implants for him at no charge. DISS delivered expert guidance, supervision and mentoring throughout the program and the latest in implantology and the future of implant technology. I highly recommend this course to other practitioners. The state of the art facility is unlike anything I have ever seen or worked in and I am very glad I came. This course was definitely a game changer for me.
I have made a great friend and mentor with Dr. Termechi and will be using his expertise even after I will be going back to my office. I am very great full about his special DISS social media access set up exclusively for the alumni of the DISS.
