For hands-on learners who seek live patient surgery experience, mini residency programs may be a perfect fit. Through the International Academy of Dental Implantology (IADI), Dr. Samuel Lee has been offering four and five-day mini-residency implant training across the globe. This spring and summer, opportunities include sessions in Tecate, Mexico; Santiago, Chile and Dongyang, China.

Another option, the cadaver three-day course, will be held at the Dental Implant Center in Burlington, Mass., in June and December of this year and features topics such as the crestal window through the socket, the lateral window technique, connective tissue harvest and palatal implant, to name a few.
