Course Description


This course allows participants to spend two pre-surgery days learning strategies about safe and predictable implant placement. The lecture portion of the program covers everything, from anatomy and patient selection to complications and tissue management.

The lecture is followed by a hands-on workshop to review proper drilling protocols and implant placement. On the final day of the program, participants will perform implant placement on a live patient.

Live Surgery

All attending doctors will perform live implant placement on a selected patient provided by the Engel Institute. Supervision and guidance are provided by Dr. Engel and his mentors to all participants performing surgery.

The day of surgery is interactive and collaboration is encouraged. After each dentist completes his/her own surgery, he/she is welcome to observe and/or assist in the several other surgeries taking place.



Team members are always welcome! We encourage any doctor new to implant placement to bring a lead surgical assistant(s) to the course as well. Staff will learn about implant dentistry and will get pre-surgical training from Dr. Engel’s team members on the surgical set-up, cleaning and maintenance of the kits and drills, etc. There is a lot to learn and doctors find comfort in having a trained team member on board when they return to their practice.
Fee for staff: $499.00 for the first staff member, $399.00 for any additional team members.
Monthly payments are available upon request. Tuition includes all lecture materials, including full course slides, all necessary hands-on materials, surgical supplies, surgical inventory, meals (light breakfast and lunch), and a social gathering on the evening of day one. All patients are provided and post-op cared for by Dr. Todd Engel.
