Bring Your Own Patients: In-Office Implant Course - Personal Mentoring in Implant Dentistry

Discover a new world of dental education


“Bob Lamb’s implant class was truly the best experience I have had for dental CE. As a result, I have simplified my implant procedures by 30 - 40%; all with tons more confidence. I have been placing implants since 2005 and attending lots of CE to hear all the 'big names'. I wish I had attended this course at IDEA in 2006!

The course paid for itself in the first week back in the office with nothing else but peace of mind and the ability to offer the highest level of care to my patients.”

Lee Baker, General Practitioner, Fort Bragg, CA


“This is a paradigm shift. What I will be doing tomorrow is 180 degree from what I did yesterday. Thank you Bob and Heike.”

Gilman Carr, Endodontist, San Luis Obispo, CA


“The mind is like a parachute; it only works when it is open." - These were great words of advice from Bob Lamb at the beginning of the course. I followed his advice and have learned much from the instructors, live cases and fellow colleagues. I leave with a greater understanding of how to obtain a successful, esthetic implant restorative and surgical result.”

David Stinchfield, General Practitioner, Washougal, WA
