Course Description


This course is surgically focused on bone grafting, membrane placement, sinus lifts, extraction techniques, PRP/PRF, tissue management, and much more. While this course is not focused on implant placement, the lecture will cover implant-focused complications and how to achieve optimal aesthetic results in the anterior region.

Mentoring I (M1) is not a prerequisite for Mentoring II (M2). However, it will pick up from where M1 left off. Participants of M2 will learn how to properly graft, place membrane, and surgically restore defected areas along with advanced technology in assisting with sinus lifts.


This course will advance your knowledge of the complexities of soft tissue and bone grafting. The grafting portion of Mentoring II provides attending doctors with the knowledge of indicating types of bone, membrane placement, and surgical techniques to achieve adequate width and adequate keratinized tissue for implant placement.

The hands-on workshops focus on extractions, tissue management, and suturing techniques. You will learn how to use the different types of grafting materials that can be used in many procedures daily in your practice.

Live Surgery

The course concludes on day three with each registered doctor performing extractions, grafting, and placing membrane with the guidance and direct supervision of a mentor of the Engel Institute.

This course is only held at our home office location in Charlotte, NC.
