Presented by Dr. Daniel R. Cullum

Utilizing osteotomes, crestal drill stop systems and other advanced techniques, this procedure can provide patients with faster healing times and minimal discomfort. Using case studies and a video library, Dr. Cullum will present straightforward, advanced and complex scenarios for treatment options, skill development and referral assessment. Attendees will have the opportunity to use the instruments, grafting materials and implants in a hands-on setting.
