If you place dental implants you do not want to miss this course.  Learn step by step how to produce an accurate surgical Guide based on a CBCT image for $20 dollars or less in your office. Using the latest 3D printing technology you can fabricate a CBCT based guide in your office for most cases - cost effectively. Place a single implant in 10 minutes using this fully guided technique to drill every step and even place the implant through the guide. This technique can be used with any implant. Use your current implant system. Dr. Rick Ferguson will tell you where to acquire the free software and then teach you the technique to make the guide. Also learn how to produce accurate surgical models to practice surgical procedures or use for patient education. We will sell nothing at this course. Our only goal is to educate dentists to do better, more accurate implant placement. A laptop (Windows or Mac with a 64 bit operating system)  will be required for the software training.
