Course Description

Although they have been in use for over 50 years, Pterygoid implants are one of the least understood styles of dental implant treatment.  This may be due to the fact that pterygoid implants are widely considered to be one of the most difficult fixtures to place in all of implant dentistry.  

This 2-day course hosted by Dr. Dan Holtzclaw, one of the world’s most experienced clinicians in pterygoid implant treatment, will provide knowledge and guidance for incorporating this style of treatment into your full arch dental implant practice.  After didactic learning about pterygoid implants, course participants will receive hands-on guidance for the placement of pterygoid implants on both models and cadavers. Course participants will also receive a complimentary copy of Dr. Holtzclaw’s new 230 page textbook, Pterygoid Implants: The Art and Science.
