For more than 30 years the Advanced Education Program in Implant Dentistry, through LLUSD’s Division of Continuing Dental Education, has provided didactic and clinical training in implant dentistry to general practitioners and specialists.

The 2020 LLU Implant Dentistry Continuum (formerly LLU Maxicourse) offers 300+ hours of lectures, hands-on workshop sessions, live surgical demonstrations, online lectures, and clinical experiences assisting and performing dental implant surgeries by course participants. These hours can be applied toward the credentialing requirements of several professional organizations. 

The lectures and workshops feature the expertise of widely regarded instructors and clinicians from Loma Linda University and around the world, including material for beginning, intermediate, and advanced clinicians in implant dentistry who wish to expand their competence in this field.  

The program is designed to systematically educate participants, starting with basic concepts and graduating to diagnosis, treatment planning, dental implant surgery, and implant prosthodontics. Attendees will develop sequential treatment plans on their own patients and perform surgeries with the assistance of experienced faculty members and residents of the Advanced Dental Education Program in Implant Dentistry.  

Attendees will also participate in hands-on workshops involving procedures such as cone-beam imaging analysis, simulated patient-based dental implant surgery on simulation manikans, and guided bone regeneration procedures on cadavers and pig jaws that will complete their understanding of basic and advanced dental surgical procedures.
