Master class session

The All-on-4® treatment concept and beyond
Dr. Armando Lopes

This master class will explore the goals in surgical and prosthodontic therapy for the edentulous patient when using the All-on-4® treatment concept. Clinical management of patients will be presented by demonstrating the data-gathering process, diagnosis, treatment planning, surgical protocols and the fabrication of both provisional and definitive implant-retained prosthesis.


Join us in learning protocols for the rehabilitation of patients with partial edentulism in the esthetic zone. Top experts will share their experiences in evidence-based treatment planning, using digital tools, modern implant designs, and established surgical and restorative protocols. Discover the innovative prosthetic components that improve treatment outcomes.


Dr. Peter Wöhrle

Dr. Peter Wöhrle received DMD and MMedSc (oral biology) degrees from Harvard University School of Dental Medicine, in addition to a specialty certificate in prosthodontics and a specialty certificate in implant dentistry. Prior to his studies in Boston, he completed a four-year dental technician program in Switzerland. At Harvard, he worked with others on developing the concept of immediate loading with Brånemark implants. Later, he applied these principles to the single tooth and the concept of immediate tooth replacement. He lectures worldwide, and his practice in Newport Beach, California, focuses exclusively on dental implants.
