This unique program at Bicon’s international training facility at the University of Cartagena will allow you to participate in all stages of implant surgery from drilling the initial pilot hole to placing the implant and suturing. Participants will not only place implants, but will also perform uncoverings and crown insertions. In addition, participants will assist their colleagues with their procedures under the supervision of the university's faculty. This course provides for a complete hands-on experience that is difficult to find elsewhere.

“The course is structured in a way that we were able to perform, assist, and discuss implant surgery from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM. It was a real implant surgery boot camp. The University of Cartagena is a very welcoming environment and the auxiliary personnel worked very hard in accommodating our needs. I'm very satisfied with the course! Now I'm confident in integrating implantology into my everyday schedule.”

“As I place implants, I find myself repeating the lessons and instructions from the Cartagena Surgical Course. I consider my experience in Colombia to be one of the best in my career. Thank you for helping to make me a better dentist. Also, I really enjoyed the cultural experience in Cartagena. I hope to someday return.”
