Practical Implant Education in Vancouver.


Learn through experience. Implant Education best learned through action. The AAID Vancouver MaxiCourse maximizes hands-on training and pairs it with internationally acclaimed expert knowledge. There is no better way to learn surgery than to have one-on-one surgical mentorship, and we provide over 10 days of surgical experience. You won’t find a program like it in Vancouver.

Learn from the ground up. Implant Education starting from square one. The AAID Vancouver MaxiCourse ® is a structured program consisting of 30 days of education over ten months, which includes over 10 days of hands-on clinical experience. The program runs annually from September to June, with each module on one weekend, Friday to Sunday. It consists of a systematic buildup of the didactic material, laboratory exercises, surgical demonstrations, clinical participation, and surgeries on your own patients. All surgeries will be mentored and supervised by AAID credentialed faculty members. Module four of the program will offer an opportunity to review surgical anatomy as well as the placement of implants and performance of various surgical procedures on cadavers at the UBC Faculty of Medicine, Department of Anatomy. Each participant will be eligible to challenge the written component of the AAID Fellowship exam at the end of the program. This is optional and a personal choice.

Learn from the best. Our program team consists of six American Board-Certified Oral Implantologists, lead by Program Director Dr. William Liang. In addition to our faculty members who work with participants throughout the year, we have a number of world-renowned speakers and clinicians who specialize on particular topics and bring higher value to our program participants. Your implant education will be as diverse as it is immersive.

Set the foundation for your future.

Our next course begins September 22, 2017! You can view a full list of the dates for the year here.
