Dr. Andrew Ferrier, Prosthodontist

Capturing the Full-Arch Opportunity in Your Market

Are you clinically prepared to satisfy the increasing patient demand for full-arch fixed implant prostheses on the day of surgery? In 2005, the over-65 population reached 43 million; by 2025, this group will escalate to 80 million, bringing along with it an increasing number of edentulous and partially edentulous patients. When proven clinical techniques are applied, immediate occlusal loading has a documented success rate of over 95 percent. Many practices want to place more dental implants and perform more full-arch cases, but struggle to attract, treatment plan and close these large procedures. Join us this CE training course to learn treatment planning and marketing techniques to increase case acceptance, especially among your existing patients.


Learning Objectives:
  • A step-by-step blueprint on treatment planning and patient consultation protocols for achieving higher case acceptance
  • How to cost-effectively identify and attract a consistent stream of full arch cases in your practice
  • Case acceptance strategies, fees and patient financing
  • Best practices for applying a team methodology with the surgical specialist, restorative doctor and the laboratory
