Course Description


One of the largest areas lacking in the GP market is the knowledge on how to properly plan treatments for full-mouth cases, from both a surgical and prosthetic perspective. This course is about learning how to sit down chairside with your patients and be able to offer a service that can be

Not only will you learn how to convert an existing denture into a snap-retained or screw-retained prosthesis, but you will learn how to present these life-altering treatment options to your patients.

Prerequisite for M3: Must have placed a minimum of 20 implants.


The planning and knowledge of how to make implant placement more efficient and predictable for our patients is priceless. M3 teaches guided surgery from how to properly plan for large restorative cases to planning treatment for the fully edentulous patient. The surgeries discussed in the classroom and performed on the final day will range from multiple single implants and implant-supported dentures to hybrids and full-arch bridges. The course will detail the sequence of how to restore these types of cases, from impression techniques to ideal materials and final processing. Also discussed will be vertical clearance, scanning appliances, CBCT interpretation, and fabrication of the surgical guide.

Hands-On Workshop and Live Surgery

The hands-on workshops will include surgical 3D planning on computers and guided implant placement on models. Each participant will practice denture conversion steps and processes before the live patient surgery. On the final day of the course, each attending doctor will place multiple surgically guided implants on both tooth-borne and edentulous patients under the direct supervision of Dr. Engel or of an Engel Institute faculty mentor.
