What is S.M.A.R.T.?
S.M.A.R.T. provides a simplified and efficient alternative to hip grafts, block grafts and traditional GBR procedures, while avoiding soft tissue defects and loss of papillae. S.M.A.R.T. is a disruptive technique that provides previously unavailable solutions to challenging clinical scenarios including reconstruction of bone loss around implants and vertical augmentation. It has the potential to change the future of bone regeneration.
At S.M.A.R.T. we envision a future where the majority of bone grafting procedures will be performed using our minimally invasive methodology, to the benefit of our patients. Laparoscopic principles and special instruments are used to achieve predictable results, with less pain, less swelling and fewer complications. In pursuit of this goal, we have structured a training program for surgically experienced clinicians. S.M.A.R.T. is the only patented minimally invasive bone grafting method with a documented track record backed by solid scientific evidence published in peer reviewed journals.

Transforming Your Practice with Digital Technology.
On October 13 and 14, our office is hosting another digital workshop to assist dental practitioners experience a complete array of digital technology. You and your staff will have an opportunity to test drive the equipment with one-on-one training. The majority of the hands-on course will take place in dental operatories with lifelike manikins and in the laboratory utilizing CAD/CAM software alongside our technicians. In addition, there will be multiple elective presentations available on information technology (IT), return on investment (ROI), 3D printing, smile design, financing options, office design, website design, and surgical planning on both days. Each participant will have an opportunity to pre-register for two, half-hour lectures each day (four elective courses in total per participant).
This two-day course will guide you in your journey to transform your practice from a conventional workflow to a digital workflow in a relatively short time. Our last workshop sold out quickly and we plan to expand the number of stations at the next workshop with additional learning objectives.
