10-Module Webinar Series Including 3 Live Broadcast Surgical Events!
This year long certificate program features 10 comprehensive modules taught via live webinars by leading experts in ceramic dentistry, covering all important aspects of zirconia implant practice, including: diagnosis and treatment planning, surgical and final restorative stages of zirconia implant cases, surgical therapies and implant placement in selected cases, prosthetic therapies, long-term maintenance, prevention and management of implant complications, and the science and long-term history of zirconia implants.
This interactive, one-of-a-kind educational program commences in January 2020 andconcludes in December 2020. Each hour and a half session takes place on the last Friday of each month, excluding July and August. Several sessions will include live surgical demonstrations, and each webinar will conclude with a group discussion and Q&A period.

The course is taught by a faculty of industry-leading Zirconia practitioners from across the United States and the world.
The course’s comprehensive curriculum will be covering all aspects of Zirconia: the science, the benefits, the procedures. Within just one year, participants will gain a wide range of competencies relevant to growing a successful ceramic practice.
Each of the 10 interactive webinars is streamed live on the last Friday of every month at 1PM EST, except for July and August. Each webinar will last from 1-2 hours, and is streamable on mobile, desktop.
While it is always better to participate in the live, interactive webinar at the scheduled time, if participants cannot take part in any module, they can stream a recording of each module on-demand anytime at their convenience, and can also log-in to rewatch previous modules.
Each of the ten 1-2 hour webinar sessions will include ample time for questions and discussion.
Participants who complete all course requirements will earn 20 CE credits and become a Fellow of the Zirconia Implant Society.
