This two-day workshop is designed to identify strengths and skill sets needed to be successful as an implant coordinator in today's specialty practice. Both the implant coordinator and hygienist can bring additional value to restorative doctors and their team through education on various implant procedures, components, and patient case acceptance techniques. Session 1 highlights the importance of clearly defined roles and responsibilities coaching to the individual strengths of each participant.
