The training has been developed for any clinician looking to increase their understanding of this established concept.1,2,3,4 The perfect complement to hands-on and classroom training, the free three-hour online course introduces the concept and covers the key considerations, from diagnostics to planning, implementation and follow-up. Initially available in English and Spanish, German, Italian, French, Russian and Chinese versions will follow in the coming weeks.
Key elements of the course include:
- Seven diagnostic factors for the All-on-4® treatment concept
- Considerations before treatment
- Critical surgical and restorative factors
- Surgical and prosthetic workflows
- How to successfully implement the All-on-4® treatment concept in your practice
- Patient communication and marketing
Over nearly two decades, the All-on-4® treatment concept has been used to treat hundreds of thousands of edentulous patients and those with a failing dentition. It offers unique advantages over traditional treatment options for both patient and clinician and is backed by 34 clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals featuring over 2400 patients.
Developed with experts
The launch of the online training comes following the publication of the e-book, How you can start with the All-on-4® treatment concept, which has already been downloaded almost 20,000 times since its launch in early October.
The course has been developed with Dr. Saj Jivraj, a leading prosthodontist, and Dr. Hooman Zarrinkelk, an experienced, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, who host the videos that make up the training.
As colleagues in California, US, the two experts have been successfully treating patients with the All-on-4® treatment concept for ten years, and are experienced educators in the required techniques.
For Dr. Jivraj, the advantages for the patient are what make developing proficiency in the All-on-4® treatment concept a rewarding achievement for implantologists. “Patients have the option to receive fixed temporary teeth the same day,” he explains. “It truly is a life changer for many out there and gives the clinician great satisfaction.”
This is echoed by co-trainer Dr. Zarrinkelk: “Obtaining the knowledge and skills to perform the All-on-4® treatment concept will transform your practice by removing the typical obstacles patients face when considering full-mouth rehabilitation.”
On completion of the course, participants will earn three CE credits5 and a certificate from Nobel Biocare. Those interested in registering for the training, or who would like more information, should visit nobelbiocare.com/all-on-4course.
