The five-day Melbourne ITI Education Week is aimed at dental practitioners with some or little implant experience. The course includes lectures, case discussions, live surgical and restorative procedures as well as hands-on sessions. It is designed to provide a sound basis for the treatment of patients with implants from both restorative and surgical aspects at the straightforward and advanced levels.

The program contains a number of live interactive surgical and prosthetic sessions with practical hands-on exercises. The most recent, evidence-based treatment concepts will be discussed as well as case assessment and use of radiographs. An insight into the biological basis for implant dentistry including timing of placement following extraction will be provided. Current concepts in loading and CAD-CAM technology will be discussed.
