The secret to placing implants confidently!
It is widely accepted that the best way to acquire knowledge and confidence in a skill relies on three pillars.
Solid theory + Repetitive hands-on practice + A knowledgeable instructor
Introduction to Implant Dentistry: The Fundamentals course
covers all those bases.
This takes place on day one, with a detailed breakdown of all the fundamentals and how to integrate them into your practice. Everything from anatomy, implant design, surgical protocols, flap design and step by step breakdown of how to place an implant successfully.
We also touch on digital implantology and go over the options in scanners, implant guide software, and 3D printing. You will learn to recognise cases that are easy, moderate or best to send away.
On day two of the course, you will do surgery on pig jaws to ensure that you are fully confident and capable before practising in your clinic. You’ll practice a wide range of implant techniques that are fully covered in the course outline section further down the page.
You are free to place as many implants as you want until you are totally confident with the procedure. Practice simple implant placement, immediate implants after extraction into a socket, socket grafting, membrane placement, and suturing techniques.
This course is run by one of New Zealand’s most respected dentists, who can put you on the path to success. Implantology can seem scary at first, but with the right training and someone guiding you through the entire process, your confidence will grow quickly.

As an attendee you get lifetime access to over 4 hours of implant theory online course so you can revisit it any time you need.
Dr Ahmad Al-Hassiny
Digital Dentist and CAD/CAM Educator
Learn implantology from one of the leading KOLs in NZ
Dr. Ahmad Al-Hassiny is a global leader in digital dentistry and intraoral scanners, carrying out lectures as a KOL for many companies and industry heavyweights.
He uses multiple different implant brands in his clinic, including BioHorizons, Osstem, Neoss, and Nobel Biocare. Dr Ahmad has placed everything from single implants and implant bridges to immediate implants, free-hand or fully guided depending on the case. Everything is done in-house so he is experienced in both the clinical and lab side, including guided implantology software and photogrammetry.
Dr Ahmad understands the difficulty and fear that comes with learning how to place implants. He has been on his own journey to becoming confident with implantology and is fully empathetic to the learning process most dentists go through. Dr Ahmad is fully supportive throughout the learning process and can help you with almost any question you have about the procedure.
He has seen first-hand, through his own work, how adding dental implants to your service offering can improve daily dental practices as well as annual revenue. His presentation style is zero fluff, straight to the point and only things that you NEED to know to get started in implant dentistry.

Check Out the Feedback From Our Attendees!
"to have this specific field as part of the service I can offer to my patients and absolutely making myself as a better dentist with more knowledge about how to restore them, safely and precisely ...
... after attending these two days of courses, he opened a whole new door for me to know how actually we should learn more into this to be able to offer this service to my patients."
"The placements and the sequence of how to do the work? Also the criteria in terms of patient selection, the anatomical structures you need to be looking for here, how to do those spots"
"The patients are, after extractions, they do not want bridges or the removable dentures anymore, they are more into that we want some permanent fix and they also wanted aesthetics. I think everything works out good with implants. So that actually led me to the implant course."
Kick-Start Your Implant Dentistry in Just Two Days
In just two days, you will leave feeling much more confident and capable of placing implants but more importantly, you'll understand core surgical knowledge and skills like raising flaps and suturing.
You will complete successful implant surgery under the supervision of trained professionals and leave the course feeling confident and ready to implement implant surgery in your clinic.
This is one of the only dental implant courses in Australia and New Zealand that covers the digital implantology workflow as well. You will see how to use digital technology as a tool to lessen the learning curve and improve treatment outcomes.
The course is capped at a small group, which ensures that everyone present gets the one-on-one time needed to fully understand each participant's needs and goals.
In just one weekend, you can learn the skills needed to massively expand your scope of treatment, give your patients the treatment they need and improve your clinic's overall revenue.
Plus, you’ll meet other local, like-minded dentists who you can lean on throughout your implantology journey.
Here’s what your life will look like when you learn implantology from Dr Ahmad and iDD
After the course, you will be able to confidently provide a treatment alternative to bridges and partial plates - because let’s face it, they are not always the best option for a large number of cases.
Gaining confidence in implants as a dentist not only unlocks a large range of new treatments, but it massively reduces workplace stress. You’ll feel a unique sense of pride when you’re able to look after all your patients in-house instead of referring them to a specialist.
- 1Increase revenue - Implantology is one of the highest dollar per hour treatments in dentistry. Introducing implantology has helped our clinic reach 7 figures per year in gross billings. It is hard to achieve this by doing drill and fill dentistry. Once you stop referring cases out that you can handle yourself, you’ll notice a massive increase in profitability and return on investment. If you integrate digital implantology (which is covered in the course), you’ll be able to tackle cases much more efficiently, meaning that you can see more patients in one day and further increase profitability.
- 2Improves your general dental skills - This implant course addresses the fundamentals of surgery, as such you’ll go back to the basics and learn a number of different skills that you can apply to different aspects of your dentistry such as wisdom tooth removal. Just by learning implantology, you’ll improve your knowledge and confidence in different treatments that rely on solid surgical skills.
- 3Reinvigorates your career - After a certain period of time, most dentists get extremely bored with simply placing crowns and doing check-ups. Don't get me started with doing fillings all day! Ensure that your career doesn’t stagnate by learning a new procedure that benefits you as well as your patient.
- 4Boosts your reputation - After a few successful implant cases, you’ll start to be known locally as a dentist that can offer a wide range of treatments, and your incredible cases will make fantastic content for your personal social media, or for your practice. There are dentists who have built their practice around implant referrals from colleagues.
- 5Attracts more patients - Having a hard time filling your books? Learning how to place implants is a great way to appeal to more patients by expanding your scope of practice. If a patient comes in with an unrestorable decoronated tooth and wants it replaced, right there and then the tooth can be removed and an implant placed. Minimizing time wasting for both the patient and the dentist.
Remember, you’re not just learning how to do implants.
You’re investing in your career, increasing the amount of money you can earn, and providing your patients with potentially life-altering treatment.

While the course will touch on digital implantology and how it can lessen the learning curve and improve your treatment outcomes, it is only a section of the course and not a focus. You will be in a much better position than people who just attend an implant course, as you will get a much more comprehensive understanding of implantology and how digital technologies can help you.
You will be learning from Dr Ahmad Al-Hassiny, a key opinion leader in the digital dentistry industry who has been placing implants. He has been placing implants for over 5 years and uses multiple different implant brands in his clinic, including BioHorizons, Osstem, Neoss, and Nobel Biocare. Dr Ahmad has placed everything from single implants and implant bridges to immediate implants, free-hand or fully guided depending on the case.
Dr Ahmad understands that learning implant surgery can be overwhelming, and offers tailored advice for each participant so you can feel confident implementing what you’ve learned in your clinic. Dr Ahmad’s teaching style is extremely engaging, he teaches you everything you need and avoids complicated jargon so you don’t feel overwhelmed.
Yes, you will get a CPD certificate with 14 hours of CPD, plus the online content provides another 4 hours of certifcation - provided you complete the quiz.
Not at all! This course is aimed at general dentists who are interested in placing implants but haven’t started, or who have learned the basics but don’t feel comfortable carrying out the surgery in their clinic.
All that’s required is an enthusiasm to learn and a willingness to get out of your comfort zone.
The course begins at 8:30 am and ends at 5pm each day.
Plenty! You’ll get plenty of practice with a range of different implant techniques, including socket augmentation, placing membranes and bone grafting. You’ll also receive one-on-one coaching throughout the course and get personalised feedback on your skills and how to improve. By the end of the course, you will be confident to start implementing implant surgery in your practice.
