Course Description


Mentoring IV (M4) is an All-on-X program with live full-arch guided surgery for all attending doctors. All 12 participants will perform full-arch surgery on a partially to fully edentulous patient.

Each patient will leave the institute with either a PMMA or a denture that has been converted chairside during the course. This is advanced implant surgery that focuses on surgical and prosthetic considerations that allow clinicians to design and execute a predictable and immediate smile for their patients.

Prerequisite for M4: Must have placed a minimum of 20 implants and have restored a full arch with either a fixed or removable prosthesis.


This course will provide you with an understanding of how to successfully execute a full-arch surgery and deliver an immediate provisional the same day. Day One includes lectures by Dr. Engel, our laboratory partner, and our partner in guided surgery. Also included in Day One is a hands-on workshop with surgical models.
Days Two to Four are surgical days. There will be two arches scheduled each day with doctors rotating through the surgeries at different stages. Doctors are encouraged to assist and/or observe for all stages of all surgeries to which they are assigned.

Live Surgery

During the surgical days, participants will be performing a full-arch surgery as well as delivering an immediate provisional restoration. During the ongoing surgeries, our lab technicians will be assisting in the operatories to facilitate immediate, chairside conversions.
This course is only held at our home office location in Charlotte, NC.



Team members are welcome to attend: $750.00 for the first staff member, $500.00 for any additional team members, and $2,500 for each laboratory technician. Monthly payments are available upon request. Please see the Register page for additional details.

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.
