A comprehensive weekend that teaches doctors & dental staff everything they need to know about All-on-4©

What All-on-4 Mini Residency Is All About

Back by popular demand, this unique All-on-4 Mini Residency course is improved as now participants can complete the entire course in just one weekend.

This intensive All-on-4 comprehensive course is designed to motivate participants to take the first step towards delivering successful All-on-4 full-arch immediate load aesthetic prostheses for edentulous patients and those suffering from terminal dentition. The course also aims to empower participants with well-designed tools, proven tips and tricks for successful patient consultation and creating the optimal treatment patient experience.

The course is packed with three sessions, spanning over a weekend, discussing how to master case selection criteria, immediate full-arch prosthetic concepts, and techniques, as well as treatment planning skills to avoid complications related to All-on-4 provisional and definitive aesthetic restorations. Participants will observe a live-surgery on an All-on-4 patient while learning the prosthetic and laboratory procedures, and teamwork skills required to predictably provide All-on-4 full-arch immediate load aesthetic prosthesis for patients.

Participants will also learn how to market and effectively complete the All-on-4 patient consultation, as well as case presentations resulting in improved case acceptance.

Why it's time to get on board


All on 4 is in demand

"Strike while the iron is hot!" paints a clear picture on this scenario. The demand for All-On-4 has been on a quick and steady rise. Patients have heightened awareness of the procedure and are seeking innovative solutions to unresolved dental disease. 

All-On-4 patients appreciate a rapid improvement in quality of life. A non-removable full-arch bridge on the day of surgery leads to improved satisfaction with function, aesthetics, sense, speech and self-esteem.

The treatment is most often completed in one procedure on the day resulting in shorter treatment time than traditional approaches.

Also, when compared to traditional, phased implant treatments for edentulous and soon-to-be edentulous patients, the All-On-4 concept is significantly less costly, for both the patient and doctor!


Improves your skills

Embracing the All-On-4 concept is a culmination of all the dental knowledge and skills you have acquired.

With this comprehensive program, you will further enhance diagnostic and treatment planning skills as you work up patient treatments. You will also draw upon your current knowledge of fixed/removable prosthetics, implant dentistry, smile design, occlusion and function

Through regular All-On-4  work-ups, you will formulate and present alternative implant solutions. Consequently, patients will view you as an "expert" and accept more implant treatments.

Experience the reward of changing patient's lives and providing outstanding patient experiences. Raise the bar of your practice!


Improved bottom line

Simply put - the All-On-4 concept is the most profitable procedure done in restorative doctor practices. Completing All-On-4  procedures will greatly enhance your bottom line.

Doctors regularly report that completing full-arch reconstruction has led to their most profitable year ever!

Besides 23 CEU credits, this All-On-4 Mini Residency also offers you a unique perk you do not see in any other program. As part of the program curriculum, you will be encouraged to identify and treat actual patients, which leads you to an immediate net profit right upon completion of the course!
